MSN Messenger - No auto sign in at startup

  Tenacious Green 09:56 14 Nov 2004

After SP2 install I have found that Messenger does not sign in automatically after a cold bootup. Once I click on it and manually sign in it works fine thereafter until computer shutdown. Pre SP2 I didn't have to touch it at all to start it up.

I have searched forum and followed some ideas but no joy. Updated to 6.2 and disabled messenger 4.

Ideas gratefully received.

Tools/Options, General tab.

Check that Automatically run Messenger when I log on to Windows is ticked.

Have you set it to start with windows and auto sign in when connected to net?,in the options part of msn,to do that you need to have your username and password saved in your net passport and messanger.

Yeah, done all that. The problem only occurs when I start the computer or when there is a log off between users, otherwise it works fine.

Uninstall and re-install hasn't helped the problem. Its like messenger is not acknowleding an internet conection is present?
