Messenger automatically starting via Outlook Exprs

  SylvesterMagic 10:44 30 Dec 2006

After letting my niece play around on my PC over Christmas - she's managed to get her Messenger account to startup automatically whenever I open Outlook Express. It's annoying more than anything else because I now can't turn it off, which means I get her friends sending me messages all the time!

I can disable it by "Logging Off" via Tools. But then when I next open Outlook Express it's there again.

I've also checked under Tools>Options and I have unchecked the automatic startup of Messenger, but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

I've even removed Messenger via Add/Remove programmes - but it still pops up when I open Outlook Express!

Any ideas? Thanks

Hi,I was going to say turn it off Via tools, But just went into mine and could not find it,Dont know where it dissapeared to, its always been on there, Unless the last up-date from Microsoft has deleted it,Have you tried up-dating microsoft in case you have missed it,Or maybe its because I use IE7, Are you still on IE6,
