Hi Danny, welcome.......Hotmail isn't a program, per say, that can be put on your computer......are you sure that is what you are referring to? Or did he just add an account to, say, Outlook or Outlook Express that checks for new hotmail?

Do you mean - MSN Messenger??? Is that the program you're talking about? AFAIK, Hotmail as AcaCandy already said isnt a program but is an email service. If you dont want to use MSN Messenger you can certainly uninstall it from Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs.

If you want to only disable it from Startup you can do it by -

Start-Run-msconfig [enter]

Click on the Startup and uncheck the entry related to msmsgs.exe. Restart the computer.

Just FYI, MSN Messenger will not screw or change your settings. I've never had any kind of problems with it.

Hope this helps. :rolleyes:
