    Outlook connection alerts won't go away

    Hi all,

    got a really irritating problem on my laptop, don't get this problem on my desktop machine.

    Every time I start up the laptop, the options for "Show Microsoft Exchange Messages", "Show Network Warnings" and "Show Network Connectivity Changes" are all enabled, despite the fact I disable them every time I login. It's really irritating me that I keep getting these pointless, unhelpful popups all the time

    Both the laptop and desktop are running Outlook 2007 under Windows XP Pro with avast email plugin enabled. The only difference between the two is that the laptop is not connected to the domain (i.e. I don't login to the network on startup)

    Any ideas how I can get rid of the irritating little blighters once and for all?

    Great program, but unless I'm being thick, it doesn't help with this problem. My problem isn't that Outlook doesn't run at startup, just that it forgets the aforementioned settings every time it is closed

    Yep, Outlook it forgets the settings every time it is closed. If someone could figure out a way to uncheck these three options (e.g. "Show Network Connectivity Changes") PERMANENTLY, they could make many people happy.

    Thumbs up Found Solution

    I know this is an old thread, but I found a solution and thought I share it with everyone.

    Microsoft article 833007 (site does not let me paste link, go to "support dot microsoft dot com forward-slash kb forward-slash 833007") provides solution for controlling these through Registry.

    It outlines instructions for Office 2003 (i.e. Office 11) but same technique works for Office 2007 (i.e. Office 12). The only difference is you must change all instances of "\11.0\" in the registry paths to "\12.0\"
