  • How does your question pertain to Microsoft Security Essentials?

    Assuming WinXP and the Welcome Screen is showing one unread message:

    Use TweakUI/Logon/Unread Mail and Repair/Unread Mail Count

    Disable Unread Mail on the Welcome Screen (Line 100)

    To remove an account or to change the count manually:

    Start>Run>Regedit>navigate to this key:

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

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail.  In the right pane modify:  MessageExpiryDays Change it to 0.
