Most people just ignore them and hope they will go away.

The account is closed after a period of non-use. It was 90 days but may have changed now.

Can you clarify please. Do you mean closing the program or terminating the hotmail account? You can sign out or exit by right clicking the icon on your tool bar and I suppose you could remove Windows Messenger from your start-up list or possibly uninstall it altogether. As Edstowe says, if you don't use it, the account will be deactivated after 90 days.

Go to click here
Under members chose Get help
close my .net passport account
log in with your hotmail adress
you'll then be told to contact hotmail. Clicking on the link takes you to a page where you can close your hotmail account.
