I've tried that also. The thing is it stays on all the time,whether I'm logged in or not. Today I went into windows task manager and had to end the process. I guess I may have to do that all the time until I find out more.
what did you try also?

Send a message via AIM to Roshi229 Send a message via Yahoo to Roshi229

run msconfig
under services, disable the messenger service
under startup, uncheck MsnMsgr, msmsgs

also if you use outlook or other office products, check your settings to make sure there isn't a check mark beside enable messaging... this launches msnmsgr and msmsgs

the windows messenger is tied into the os and to MS Office.. you may remove it, and you won't look like you're online, but it's still there and it's still running


<form action=\"\" method=\"get\">
<input type=\"text\" name=\"search\"> <input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Search first, ask later!\"></form>
