Start - Programs - Startup --- check and delete any shortcut to msn4.7 here.

Download a startup manager
Startup Managers:-
WinPatrol click here

and remove msm 4.7 from the list of programs allowed to open at windows start.

I think you will find that the 4.7 is actually windows messenger and not MSN, open messenger, goto tools/options and untick "load on windows startup"

that should stop it from starting with windows though it will still pop up when you open outlook express
