logged on screen and antispyware program

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by =?Utf-8?B?SmFrZQ==?=, Dec 29, 2005.

  1. When I wake my computer, and the log on screen appears stating that I am
    logged on, it also displays that I have 1 email message that is unread. I do
    not have a email waiting to be read in the account specified, nor do I know
    how to remove that message. Below that, it also states that i have one
    program running. Is that the microsoft spyware program running? I installed
    it yesterday, and this message appeared after the install. Also, when I look
    at the task manager, there is an indication that my explorer.exe is running
    (only using between 0%-2%) but I'm not even connected to the internent. Any
    ideas on these problems?

    I expect it is MSAS to which the message refers. Since you say the
    behavior happened right after installing the program, that is a pretty
    good cause+effect. If you are nervous about it, do some startup
    troubleshooting.

    The easiest way to remove the unread mail message is with the free MS
    Power Toy TweakUI. It has a setting to remove the unread mail message
    on the Welcome Screen.

    Compliments of Kelly:

    Use TweakUI/Logon/Unread Mail and Repair/Unread Mail Count

    Disable Unread Mail on the Welcome Screen (Line 100)

    To remove an account or to change the count manually:

    Start>Run>Regedit>navigate to this key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail\[Your
    E-Mail Address]. In the right pane modify: Message Count, Change it to 0.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail. In
    the right pane modify: MessageExpiryDays Change it to 0.
