I can only try to explain it a little better. Outlook Express 6 comes setup this way. There is a MSN link at the top of the screen. Says..."Go To MSN" It isn't a web mail link. When I click that link the full http.www address comes up on the bottom left side of the page while it opens that link in a new window. I don't have to do it. It just goes to the MSN home page.

Yes, it isn't a seach box. Just takes you to MSN. It will freeze the fuctions of OE until that MSN page loads though.

OK can you get a screenshot of your IE opened up so I can see exactly what you are describing?
Tp do this just open IE and then do the following:

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

OK this is Outlook and not IE. The link you are talking about isn't much good for you so use outlook as your email client and IE as your browser.
Uf you want to be able to get to MSN without typing it in then go to it the firt time in IE and then bookmark it.

Thats right, I don't use MSN. It is only that link that boggs down OE when I click on it. Really not a big deal compared to my original post problem.

Yeah I myself don't use Outlook anymore but I remember the link you are showing. There really is no reason to click on it since it is suppose to take you to the msn web page and you can do that thru IE anyway.
I wouldn't worry about it honestly and just not click on it. Unless there is a reason you need to click on it that I haven't seen you mention yet.

No problem at all. I only brought it up because it was similar to the original problem of an opening webpage slowing down the other opened pages.

Thanks again.
