Annoying thing, my daughter uses MS Messenger, how can I stop it starting automaticlly at start up. I keep deleting it from the start up control panel but still starts at sstart up

Start>Run>Type"Msconfig">Startup>Uncheck"Msmsgs">OK
Next time you start up windows will moan about being in selective startup and ask you if you want to return to default start up or words to that effect, just pick the option to keep selective start up.

Open up mess.

Click, tools, options, general, remove tick from the box next to "Auto. run messenger..."


Click ok.

That wont remove it, it will just stop it running at startup!
