    I have another internet related problem.

    I just got a new computer and XP. I registered the stuff and someplace it wanted my Passport e-mail address. So I put in my hotmail.com address.

    Now, whenever I connect to the internet, it automatically connects my MSN. CAn I stop this. I tried everything. Even the SAVE PASSWORD thing. Cause there are other people that use MSN and I don't want them talking in mine.

    Lets try it just for kicks anyway.

    Right click the MSN icon in the systray, go to tools>options>preferences>uncheck the box for starting when windows starts and allow this program to run in the background.

    Then (this is the maybe part) go to start>run>type msconfig>start tab>uncheck MSN>ok>restart system.
