How to stop Messenger automaticaly signing in

  SHUNNA 15:06 10 Nov 2003

Whenever I connect up to the net, messenger signs me in.
In Help in messenger, lists two methods of stopping windows messenger automaticaly signing in, neither of which seem to work,

Method 1 refers to the "Remember my name and password" box in the "Sign in to .Net Messenger Service" dialogue box. This box is not there on my computer. There is a "Sign me in automaticaly" box however and it`s not ticked.

Method 2 refers to the "Advance" tab in the User Accounts Window. This also does not exist. All there is in this window are three options under the heading "Pick a task"
1 Change an account
2 Create a new account
3 Change the way users log off

Oh almost forgot, I`m running WinXP Pro

Go to OE, Tools, Windows Messenger, Options, Preferences Tab and in the General section you can untick signing-in.
