MSN Messenger Annoyance

  dstarr78 03:27 13 Jun 2003


I have MSN Messenger (version 4.7.2009) installed, and it's driving me crazy at the moment because whenever I connect to the internet and open explorer or Outlook Express, messenger loads up and stays hidden from me so i don't know that I am on it.

This is very annoying as when I just want to quickly pop on the net without talking to anyone or whatever.

I have the checked that in Messenger Tools>Options the "Run program when Windows starts" box is UNchecked.

And also, i have unchecked the box in Outlook Express where it asks me to run messenger when opening Outlook Express.

Does anyone know of any other check boxes I should be made aware of to stop the messenger service loading when i don;t want it to?

Or even a workaround for it happening?

Help would be much appreciated.
