Stop messenger on startup - Vista

  Seadog 10:35 17 Jun 2009

A friend has just bought a new Dell laptop, with Vista os. Everytime it starts up the windows live messenger 'sign in' window pops up onto the screen.
My friend is finding this annoying having to close this every time.

Is there a way that she can disable this?
(I use Xp and don't know much about Vista)

Its the same for both, select Tools then options and then select Sign In on the right hand side, take tick out of Automativally Sign In when Messenger starts.

From what menu do I select 'tools - options'?

Sorry, but I do not have messenger on my Xp pc at all. I can't remember if I actually installed it when I built the pc! Or maybe I removed it - I can't remember. Old age playing tricks again.

Thanks again.
