I am running WIndows XP and using Outlook 2010. However when I start my computer I get a popup box asking if I want Outlook Express to compact my messages. I do not use Outlook Express but it is on my computer. Can this be disabled somewhere or should I just remove Outlook Express all together?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
