Win 7 Starter & Windows Live Messenger

  bgrave 12:58 16 Mar 2010

Hello. I have a Samsung Netbook. Each time I boot up Windows Live Messenger is the last to appear, this program increases the boot up time and I do not use it can I either remove it or at least disable it. I have Win 7 Starter.

Thanks in advance.

messenger.Tools.options.Sign in.Untick the top 2 or 3 boxes.Apply.Ok
That will stop it running at start up.

Thanks for your input buteman; I could not get to the form with "Tools" and I was advised to download and install an upgrade for Live Messenger, I did just that and then uninstaled it and that done the trick. Boot up time is a little better now.
