    Whenever I run Outlook Express, Windows Messenger starts. This has happened every since I installed SP2 (I'm on XP Home), and it's reeeally irritating. I hate Windows Messenger. I had this problem a long time ago but I believe I solved it by making AIM my default IM program. That doesn't work this time and I cannot find any settings in Windows Messenger or OE to disable this. Anyone know how to kill it?
