Outlook autostarting after installing SP 2

Help. I am having problems with a few Windows XP workstations that I
have recently upgraded to SP2. Outlook autostarts after I reboot. I
tried removing Outlook and then Outlook Express autostarts. I checked
all the startup folders but there are no entries. Has anyone else out
there experienced this problem. My only solution is to tell our users
that this is a feature and not a problem. Just kidding. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

As I don't see this related to SP2, but then who knows......check here:
Start/Run/Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Under Shell in the right pane it should read: Explorer.exe

Keep us posted either way.
