I have downloaded the new Windows live messenger and every time I bootup I get the icon in the task bar even though I have removed the tick from the box in the msnmsgr box after going to :start,run, msconfig startup and clicking apply. Every time I reboot the tick has reappeared and the messenger window opens. How can I stop this hapenning please. I did not have this problem with the old messenger.
You need to disable auto-start in Messenger itself - go to Tools/Options/General , untick `Automatically Run Windows Messenger when I log on`. Best to check a program's own config options before resorting to MSConfig
SANTOS7, thank you. That appears to relate to win messenger and the new Win live messenger is very different so I don`t know if that applies. I will look into that further before trying it. Thanks anyway.
