It's possible you have both Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger installed.

I get that too. someone told me to hide inactive "icons" in the taskbar (winXP) it worked for a few days, now it is happening again ?? Alan

which do i need to keep
net messenger or windows messenger

stutrav....your choice I guess. Windows Messenger is fine for me, my son prefers MSN Messenger.

To stop messenger from running go to Tools/Options/Preferences and remove the ticks under the General tab. (messenger will still be installed but won't run). That's the Tools menu in Messenger by the way.
