Getting rid of MSN sign-up

  spuds 22:24 13 Jun 2003

Recently installed XP Home, and the MSN sign up page keeps appearing. I have gone through all the disable,remove procedures without success. I must be doing something wrong.How can I get rid of this annoyance.

wheelie- Tried that, still no success!!.MSN seems to return on re-boot.

nick-Yes,it is the Microsoft Messenger service. The annoyance is the full subscribe screen,that appears on booting-up, which seems to want you to subscribe to this service.

Irishman- Its not a spyware, appears to be in XP Home programme.We have installed Ad-Aware and SpyBot,the MSN doesn't show up. Your link,no spreken ze deutch (;o)

Since raising the problem on the 13/06/03, I have had a computer upgrade including a new O/S,so the matter is now resolved. Should have kept check on my past postings but forgot.Appologies to you all.
