Google search for "Compact Check Count"
Lots of people with same problem.
Following instructions form some of these posts, I modified (manuallly) from time to time, with REGEDIT, the value in the Register to 0 .
But to do it programmatically, one of the links
includes some code I have NOT tested my self...
Another of the links, mentions another solution, but seems not to work ALWAYS, so... not trustable (for me...)

Couple months ago my Outlook Express (in XP Pro pc)
started issueing the "To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages. This may take up to a few minutes."
It happens randomly, sometimes several times a day, sometimes every couple days.
I searched the web, and found it should come up every 75th time Outlook Express opens.
I do let it compact the folders every once in a while.
Can't find a Properties setting that controls this.
Up to date w/MS patches.
Any idea how to stop this.
