The one I dissable and another one. Minor anoying problem. Nice trick Mr. Gates and Co.? Or maby just a glitch. Let me know.

Hi,

- Click on the start button and select run.
- Type gpedit.msc in the text box and select OK.
- Navigate through Computer Configuration to Administrative Templates to Windows Components to Windows Messenger.
- Select and enable Do not allow Windows Messenger to be run and Do not automatically start Windows Messenger initially

Good luck,

yeah, i had the same problem, and did the same thing as you, (didn't do what tony said) but in the messenger options, you can just set it to not start on startup, and that stopped it.
worked for me.

Thanks Tony. That did it.

Thanks Trboy. Sometimes it is the simplest solutions that we miss in our pursuit of a complicated solution.
