i cant get rid of MSN Messenger's automatic sign in!! i have windows XP ! i have achieved that in windows 2000, but in XP.. it's different. in windows 2000 i just went in to the Registry Editor and searched something with my e-mail , i mean i searched my e-mail address, and found some User.NET messenger service, deleted that and it was done :D !!! but in XP i cant find that data. Can somebody help me ? .... i know in the end i can achieve that by uninstalling Messenger, and everything related to it, and then installing it again, but is there a shortcut?
the problem is, that my e-mail is on the window when i open MSN messenger, and then you just press sign in, and it signs in! the problem is, what if somebody else used my computer, they could log in to my account anytime they wanted. i saw my cousins do it, that's when it hit me.
This a new "feature" (ahem) of XP and NET Passport accounts. Once you have a NET Passport it gets linked to your XP Account on your PC. I think the assumption is that if you are logged into an XP Account then you are also the NET Passport owner and therefore automatically logs you into your MSN and Hotmail.
I assume you want a password prompt instead?
One fix would be to have a second account for guests.
the problem is not getting into hotmail. the problem is signing into my messenger without my password. you know when you sing in you have that little tab "always remember my username and password" ! well can i undo that thing :@
