I started getting an error message when trying to get into my outlook express. It wasn't connecting. However, I uninstalled Zone alarm and reinstalled, fixing the problem. Now, though, any new programs I install remain in the start menu as new programs weeks later. The start menu keeps telling me new program installed ans highlights them in yellow. How can I fix this? I am using XP Pro.

Hi,

If you want to get rid of this "feature", right click the task bar, select "Properties" and deselect "Personalization" (something like that) near the bottom.

I found that by going into 'Control panel', then 'Taskbar and start menu',followed by 'customize', then click on the 'advanced' tab and unticking 'highlight newly installed programs' deactivated it and solved the problem. Thanks.
