Hi Music Lover,

I think for winME you need to do the following:

click on start...then run
and type in msconfig and press enter

one of the tabs on the top will say startup click on this and then just remove the ticks from the squares next to the files that mention icq and reboot.

if for any reason a program that did run at startup fails to run just put the tick back in the box next to it.
