Default Disable MSN Messenger

my apologies if this is in the wrong section. i wasn't too sure where to post it. for some reason i wasn't allowed to post in the off topics section.

every time i boot the pc msn messenger starts. i've gone into the startup list in msconfig and unticked 'msnmsgr'. i restart the pc. for some reason msn still starts and it is still ticked in msconfig. I dont want to uninstall it, just stop it from starting up automatically.

Can't you sign in, and in the options tab uncheck start messenger on login or something like that? Not sure why it keeps starting if you killed it in msconfig.

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Well first you can not go into Off Topic now until you get 40 posts. There was a announcement about it. Please read that. Thank you.

As for MSN Go under Tools>Options>Sign In and uncheck the Auto start MSN and teh other options. It will go away.
