E-mail Notification Below User Icon

How can I stop this notification of un-read e-mails below my user icon on
start up. It's not correct and says I have unread e-mails when I don't. Thanks

That link is good, but I don't even know how to "start the registry editor".
Isn't there a way in control panel - user groups that can just turn off this
e-mail notification?

Thanks

You could try using start/all programs/"Set Access and Defaults" to set your
mail default.

No. It requires the registry edit.

Ok, thanks. How do I access the registry edit?

Either one of these options:
= Download this Fix from Kelly:
Line 100- Disable Unread Mail on the Welcome Screen;
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

= Open a run Commadn adn type in:
regedit click [OK] Navigate to these keys and make the changes:

[-]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail\[Your
E-Mail Address]. In the right pane/Window modify by double click: Message
Count, Change it to 0.

[-]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail. In
the right pane/Window modify by double click: MessageExpiryDays Change it to
0.

= Or you can Use the TweakUI to Remove Unread Mail and Repair/Unread Mail
Count
