    I have a Black week only a week old and it only comes on after I have accessed Pocket MSN (hotmail or others in that group)

    My Q starts the pmsnserver process for no reason. I have the check for mail option set to never but when I leave the Q inactive for a bit, the process starts and it drains my battery. This is on a full charge too by the way. If I see any bars gone I know when I open up the task manager, my dear friend is gonna be there. There has to be a better solution to this other than hosing the registry. I have tried that option and I got errors when I used my POP mail account. I am losing my cool here.

    heres what i did, nuked all the registry entries (maybe like 15 that show up searching *MSN*)

    there all in classes root....

    I dont use MSN on the Q or hotmail account but my other mail/ txts work and after 12hrs no pmsnserver.exe

    Just backup your registry before hand.. worth a shot

    If you dont know what the registry is, I would be very very careful about modifying it.

    so. yesterday i downloaded resco registry and

    -Open Registry Editor
    -Hit soft button Menu
    ->Edit
    ->Find
    -searched pmsnshared
    -found pmsnshared.dll
    -selected and opened the (default)
    -changed pmsnshared.dll to pmsnshared.dl

    THIS IS WHERE THE PREVIOUS INSTRUCTIONS IN PREVIOUS POSTS GOT PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY IT WASNT WORKING
    BECAUSE YOU MUST FIND NEXT!

    -Hit soft button Menu
    ->Edit
    ->Find Next
    -found pmsnshared.dll
    -selected and opened the (default)
    -changed pmsnshared.dll to pmsnshared.dl

    DO THIS UNTIL IT SAYS "End of Registry reached. Do you wish to continue to search from the beginning?"

    and thats it. your done. no more freakin pmsnserver.exe killing your battery and charging you kb usage on your verizon bill! :angry:

    i think it has been mentioned in previous threads that you have to keep looking until you find none, i deleted all pmsnserver.exe references in the registry and it hasn't appeared in the task manager since..

    What effects, if any, has deleting these registries had on email and outlook? Checking the task manager and killing apps has become an obsession because of that stubborn pms server. I'm not sure if my battery is really being drained by this process or not but it's just annoying when you see it pop up constantly. I'm considering doing the whole Resco thing but I read somewhere about some dude having problems with POP mail afterwards. Has anyone had any issues? I'm using GMail is that's any help.

    thats when you DELETE everythign that pops up with pmsnserver search.
    if you just do what I posted and change all the pmsnshared.dll to pmsnshared.dl then that will only disable your msn MESSENGER and HOTMAIL

    either way.... i removed all the pMSNServer.exe entries in the registry, has no effect on my mail, added i use Gmail and not Hotmail or anything MS related.

    regarding the obsession of killing tasks... here some food for thought, it may cost more battery to obsessively keep starting the Task Manager to kill apps :}

    I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but the easiest way I found was to overwrite the file with a zero byte file with the same name. Never had a problem. Never had to change a million registry entries.
