For some reason Windows messenger is now loading at start up, I can only disable it in msconfig if I go for a selective start up, then I get the dialogoue box telling me that I am not starting in normal mode I.e. all drivers and devices.
I dont user Messengerand I cant find it in add remove programs, so how can I disable it, any help would be appreciated.
