On Welcome screen, the "unread email messages" alert

booting doesn't work.

    Hi Doug,

    Click on Start/Run and type Regedit and press enter. Navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail

    and delete the keys under it which represent the mail accounts that you dont use anymore. Please be advised that
    incorrectly editing the registry can be fatal to the OS and leave the system un-bootable. Use caution when editing the
    registry.
