Way back in May 23rd 2007 ThreadID: 45758 I had a debate with MrBitchi about getting rid of Computer programs, the program debated was Incredimail, He was adamant it would return and cause problems embedded in the computer to return at given day, Well Mr Bitchi I have not seen hide nor hair of it since the day I deleted it....MY WAY. makes me wonder what he learnt in those fantastic 20 years he mentioned.

By the way, Skype plays merry hell with the system too, so I just got rid of that in the same method,,,totally

Doug
I also have Incredimail lurking- and would like to scrap it. However, is there some way I can 'save' the in & out box currently in Incredimail & transfer to my current emailer (Outlook Express) ??
Also, is there some special way (YOUR WAY) of deleting programs we should know about??

I have no issues with Skype.

Problem may be that you have too many other 'wild' bits and pieces of software floating around in your computer.

Which Browser are you running? I found that IE7 gave me lots of grief and reverted to IE6.


Cheers

I run IE7 , No other problems , it was only when Skype was still active in the Notification tray in the botton right corner, once I clicked Quit on the icon all was well, I get a free hour on the mobile anyhow so won't be to concerned about it,
I don't think my PC has too mant wild bits, I see some people have a desktop full of short-cut icons which tend to slow down start up, No need to have them on the desk top as thet're in the start menu or in the Quick launch .

Please explain, from your vast font of computer wisdom, how having a shortcut on the desktop will slow down start up.......

Couldn't afford to run our business without Skype - these day's its just about a necessity when the majority of my calls are long distance and long duration. Especially perfect now that so many people only give out/have mobile phone numbers. The only troubles I have with Skype are when other people use my computer and fiddle with the speakers and headsets and volumes and mutes etc and I miss incoming calls cause I can't hear them!! I use IE 7 by the way and have no probs.

We run our communications between offices and with staff around the world, on Skype and Yahoo Messanger. Never had any problems on any of our computers in the office or on the Laptops. Could not exist without these two programs in todays world.

The Go is that incredimail is incorrectly named It should be called Bloatmail.
It makes Email messages much larger than a normal plain email therefore taking up more time to receive and space to store on a computer.
The reason is that you also have to send your fancy ?????backgrounds as well as the text, which takes the least space. At one time it was famous for concealing nasties, but as I havent used it for years I dont know about the newer versions.

I dont have my preview pane open in Outlook Express so can delete doubtful emails before opening them thereby avoiding most nasties

True but some mail servers only permit messages of a relatively small size so if you have any undelivered mail, that may well be the reason
