BT/Yahoo browser

I have just updated my BT/Yahoo browser.
I now find I have the Yahoo Messenger icon in my start up tray on boot up. How can I stop this thing running?
I've looked at msconfig start up, but can't decide which item to deselect - or is there an easier way?

Download a very small program called Shoot the messenger. This works a treat and is instantly reversable should you so desire. Try Google for it.

That's for disabling Windows Messenger Service.

tristar - start Yahoo Messenger, Login, Preferences, General, untick Automatically start Yahoo! Messenger.

Thanks, Bagsey, that's sorted it nicely
