Sandy, knowing your expertise, I know you properly uninstalled Incredml., i.e., the installation finished properly & only then did you uninstall it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if not, then try reinstalling and then proceed to uninstall.
If you know for certain that you did as explained above yet the glitch is present, then try using MSConfig to rid yourself of the icon you explained. You will have to look for the "incredimail" tag & uncheck it.
Reboot and see if you're rid of this.
Look here for some background info on XP's MSConfig:
It would be nice if you could check the registry for the changes incredml. made, so that you would be totally rid of it..., but then again messing with the reg. could be detrimental!
I don't know if  jv16 would work in XP; remember Juanita posted a link to a working version that doesn't  expire. Let me know if you need the link to that, though first we'd have to ascertain that it works in XP. This is wher someone with XP expertise would come in handy. Does anyone here know if jv16 works with XP?

Subject: [triadtechtalk] Incredimail Installation Woes

Stupidly, I tried to install Incredimail on my PC at work, thinking that if I didnt like it or if it caused problems, I would just uninstall it. I did uninstall it. It is not noted in Add/Remove Programs, nor does it show up in Program files. However, every time I start my computer, a flipping thing comes up and asks do I want to continue with the installation of Incredimail. When I say no, it places an installation icon on the desktop to continue later. How can I get rid of this infernal nuisance. I ran Spybot and Adaware but they didnt help. I even tried system restore (XP Pro) but it said it couldnt go back to whatever restore point I asked it to (whether or not this is an Incredimail quirk, I'm not sure, but system restore has worked on other occasions). Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks everyone.
Sandy :)
