easy msn messenger for you to solve

  pharte 22:04 23 Jan 2004

running xp home, my computer automatically logs onto microsoft messenger at sign on and when I click my little msn6.1 icon in the tray it signs me out of messenger and into msn 6.1.

how do you switch off or delete the original messenger to leave just the 6.1 version so I can connect when I want to. (the settings are all ok for 6.1)

Open Messenger then Tools > Options > General

Usually caused by having MSN & Windows Messengers installed on your pc,go to Add/Remove WINDOWS COMPONENTS and remove Win Messenger,or click start/run and copy/paste this in the box

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
