Getting rid of MSN sign-up

  spuds 22:24 13 Jun 03

Recently installed XP Home, and the MSN sign up page keeps appearing. I have gone through all the disable,remove procedures without success. I must be doing something wrong.How can I get rid of this annoyance.

hi spuds"i think you mean messenger,as i have never encountered msn appearing?

Go into Outlook Express. Under the "General" heading, untick "Automatically log on to Windows Messenger".

wheelie- Tried that, still no success!!.MSN seems to return on re-boot.

nick-Yes,it is the Microsoft Messenger service. The annoyance is the full subscribe screen,that appears on booting-up, which seems to want you to subscribe to this service.

Spuds, if you press the little Union Jack above the title 'Was ist eigentlich XPAntiSpy' it will change it to English.

If you want to remove messenger totally from your system...

VoG®'s post although it seems a strnage one is the only way to remove messenger from your computer.
