Microsoft Windows XP Log-On Screen!

    Whenever I reboot or boot my computer up from it being turned off, obviously
    it boots up to the Log-On screen, where you choose what user you want to log
    on with. Well this is the problem I am having. I am the only person who
    has an account on my computer, so it's just my name there/account. Below my
    name it keeps displaying "you have 1 unread message". The problem is I
    don't! The only E-Mail account I have associated with my computer is my MSN
    Messenger user ID, which is -this is my log on for MSN
    Messenger. I check my comcast email, it says I have no email, yet on the
    windows log on screen it keeps saying I have 1 unread message.

    I use to have hotmail accounts on my computer but deleted all of them today
    and decided to use my comcast email and only my comcast email. I removed
    all the accounts for hotmail under the administrative tabs. I have double
    checked, there are NONE there except for my user name with MSN Messenger but
    it's not a hotmail account email address.

    Can anyone help?

    Why does it keep saying I have 1 email message that is unread when I don't?

  5. My advice.. get used to it. :-D

    Or stop using the Welcome screen. Click Start>>Control Panel>>User
    Accounts>> Change the way users log on or off and remove the check from Use
    the Welcome screen...

  7. You might check Outlook express and if you have it Outlook. Both have
    welcome messages when you open them for the first time. Could be a
    leftoverf message there.

    Yeah I checked EVERYTHING. When I was using my hotmail accounts, I never
    used them with outlook express or outlook 2002, I always used my email via
    the web based site. But I went thru express, removed everything
    from all the folders, even my newsgrouop account information, logged in to
    all my hotmail accounts that I had, made sure everything was deleted from
    that as well and then personally closed each hotmail account.

    It still sounds rather like you might have a 'default' account
    laying around, that shares your OE settings, and has one of those
    'welcome's in it.
    Maybe double (okay, by now, triple) check with a search for .dbx

    I dunno if it helped anyone else, but it sure as heck helped get rid of my
    11 non-existent emails from my Welcome screen!

    Where were you a month or so ago when I asked?? ;-)

    So sorry Blinky old fish, you get demoted to troutbie 2 for your
    impertinent bedside manner and lack of even the smallest smackeral of
    comedic talent.

    Oh, I wouldn't worry about it. It's only one of the wee elfin
    house-trolls peeping at me with what it considers the "troutbie" zinger,
    from beyond my killfile.
    Of course, it wanted to give you a nip, as well, to emulate and

  15. You are still a coward old phish, after years of friendship <or what
    passes as friendship round here> you pull the plug and Kill File me
    because you refuse to face the truth about yourself. You are a coward.

  20. "What passes as a friendship around here?" <boggle> You're the one that
    left my friendship with you without so much as a buh-bye, kiss my fanny or
    nuttin' honey and that *hurt*!

    <you obviously wanted me and your other "passing friends" to see this as
    you've jumped the kill file again> ....sigh.....;o( I'm sorry PPH, but I just don't
    understand how you could and can turn on your "so-called" friends with this
    behavior....and I don't want to discuss this any longer here. You have my
    REAL email, please email me and calm my heart.....;o(
