BT Yahoo Messenger

Does anyone now how to stop Bt Yahoo Messenger from starting at log up. I am running XP home, and although it does not start up when I log in, on the other 3 users (2 administrator and 1 limited accounts) it either opens maximised or minimised in the bottom right hand corner. I have not found it in any of the start-up folders and cannot find any settings within the messenger itself.

All advise welcome. Thanks

on contact list at the top,click on Login > Preferences. In the General section at the top, take the tick out of Automatically start Yahoo messenger

This may be the answer?

sorry know what you mean now. Cannot select though. Only the connection option will display and I cannot select any off the other options.

You could try this:

run msconfig, open "startup", look for "ypager", and make sure that it is not ticked. If it is, untick it, then click apply, then OK.

Don`t know about BT Yahoo messenger, but it works on ordinary Yahoo messenger.
