    hi, i recently installed win2k, and after about 4 installation attempts everything works fine. the only thing bugging me is that outlook express is showing ads on the bottom of the application window. i thought that there would be a way to shut it off through options or something but i haven't been able to find any options or documentation about it.
    i was using win98 SE before and there were no ads.

    does anyone know of a way to shutting the ads off? they are really distracting and it takes me longer to get my email. of course the ads are only there for the hotmail accounts.

    maybe i should just use eudora, but i like OE.

    Outlook Express 5.0 has no ads when you use the Hotmail support thing. Outlook Express 5.5 (which comes with Windows 2000) has ads in Hotmail. I'm pretty sure there is no way to turn it off.

    Still, you have a free email account, the least you could do is have a banner on your screen.
