are you talking about messenger service? go to Start, Run: type services.msc then go to Messenger Service (right click, hit properties, change startup type to disabled and hit stop, then hit ok and close it) don't confuse this with Windows Messenger (MSN Messenger or any IM service)

hope that helps

also wrong section
