MSN and OE

  Madrat 20:24 27 Nov 2006

Can some one please tell me why messanger keeps loging in everytime I open up IE?

It only dose it if I have to PC on for over 5 mins and dont open up OE in that time. The worst thing about it is that I cant tell I'm loged in till some one tryes to chat. It is also mesanger 5 that is opening event though I use 7.5

Probably you still have the old Version of windows messenger,Start all programs, Look for windows messenger, Open it ,and set it the same way as you have done with MSN Messenger.

Sorry I dont have windows messenger 5 Any more so cant help, I know you turn it of in there somewhere, You can always up-grade W/ Mess5 To Win/ Mess 8 ,Then stop it from opening on there,Just the same controls as MSN Messenger.And you dont lose your contacts.

are we talking Windows Messenger ?

If so,Open W-Messenger and select tools /options /preferences/ untick all 3 boxes under general.

Outlook Express /Tools / General / untick " Automatically log on to Windows Messenger "
