Hi,

This has been bugging me for aaaaaaaaaaaages, time to try and sort it out!

My MSN try's to sign in when I come offline. I go online, it signs in as it should great, then I come offline close my browsers etc so I'm looking at my desktop. A few seconds later the green man starts flashing and my internet connection dialog box appears asking me to go online. I cancel this, MSN stops, then a few seconds later it tries again. After the 2nd or 3rd time of this, it gets the message and doesn't happen again until I go back online and offline then the ritual starts again!

I'm not sure if it does this without me going online, after I boot, cos I usually go straight online first thing to check my mail etc.

Any ideas?

If by MSN you're referring to MSN Messenger? Then open Messenger (all versions have this feature just in slightly different locations), on or off-line, click the Tools menu; Options; Preferences. Clear the check box next to 'Run Windows/MSN Messenger when Windows starts.' Click the OK button. Close and Exit Messenger.

Start/Open Outlook Express; Click the Tools menu; Point to Options; Clear the checkbox next to 'Automatically log on to Windows/MSN Messenger. Click Apply; Click Ok. Close then restart Outlook Express for changes to take effect.
