there should be a checkbox somewhere that says, Remember Password or there's somewhere in options that says Remember password...if you can find that, un check it...

i think what you are looking for is somewhere in internet explorer's "tools>>internet options". i don't know what the setting is called, maybe under the "content" tab click autocomplete and uncheck the passwords box?

try going into the tools menu in msn itself and unchecking "allow automatic sign in when connected to the internet", this may do the trick but if not update to the most recent version and it easier to do in it as it allows you to change on the first msn screen
