Start Outlook Express. That's the 'subsystem' it's waiting for.

The Outlook scanner is only active when Outlook (express) is active.

"Outlook/Exchange" protects MS Outlook (not Express) and Exchange client. It is waiting because you don't use them, it's OK. "Internet Mail" is for all other mail programs, e.g Outlook Express.
What error messages does Outlook Express display ?

Oops, I was wrong.

(shifting the blame) It's Petm's fault! He said "I'm informed that Outlook/Express..."
