    Should be a check box somewhere in the "Options" of msn messenger to "Start when windows starts" and maybe "Run msn messenger in background" or something similar. Uncheck those and close the program.

    Hi Mandy123,

    Maritimesea is correct. If you go to Tools - Options - General and uncheck the box "Automatically Run Messanger...." you then have control of when you use it.

    I do find that mine activates when I access Outlook Express but a right click on the icon (bottom right) allows you to select the optionto appear off line.
