Windows Messenger automatically logs in

Hi all

I have a problem with Windows Messenger.
Whenever I open Outlook Express Windows Messenger opens & automatically signs in one of my sons, although we have several log in names & the 'sign me in automatically' box is not ticked.

I have also unticked the 'Run Windows Messenger when windows starts' & 'Allow Windows Messenger to run in the background' boxes.

I found Messenger in Administrative Tools\Services & under the 'General' tab have tried setting the 'Startup type' to 'Disabled' & 'Munual'. Still it signs him in.

Although this could be handy to keep track of him, the 'Yo dude' messager I get from his mates when I am working get a little annoying.

Windows XP SP2, Windows Messenger version 4.7.3000.

Any ideas?

That seems to have done the trick.
