MSN Messenger

When I click on MSN messenger, it comes up with numerous email address for me to choose, depending on which one I want to use, how can I delete all those email address within the drop down menu.

I can delete the email addy showing, but somehow I cannot delete it from the drop down bar

In Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Change an Account, click on your login account, and then on the left click on Manage my network passwords. You should now be presented with a list of accounts, some of which are the accounts listed in the .NET login. And a Remove button.

Then click on Start and Control Panel should be one of the options on the large menu option box which pops up from the bottom left.

Or go to My Computer and Control Panel should be shown in 'Other Places'.

OK, I got as far as "manage user accout" when I clicked on it, a new box came up "stored user names and passwords" but that box is blank

Hi Sant07

OK, thx, and I'm sorry if I'm testing your patience.

I've followed your instructions and it took me back to that "stored user names and passwords"

Again it's blank
