MSN Messenger keeps connecting to internet

I'm currently having a problem with MSN Messenger.

I can't unintsall it. Whenever I do, it just re-installs itself.

I can't stop it from loading. Whenever I select from properties for it not to load, it ignores this and loads itself regardless.

I can't stop it from connecting to the net. There's nowhere to select an option - that I can find - that allows me to tell it to not connect to the internet until I want it to - and it would no doubt ignore it anyway given what's happening with it.

Finally, whenever I sign out, it decides to sign me back in 5-10 minutes later!!!!!!

How can I stop this damn program from connecting to the interent until *I* want it to?

Start>Settings>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>double click on Services>scroll down to Messenger>use the menu to Disable.

You can always Enable it again if necessary.
