Windows Live Messenger Automatic Startup

By leedsfan88 ·
My MSN messenger is continuing to start up when i turn on my laptop.

I'm runnig Vista and i've disabled the MSN program on "msconfig" and it doesn't start up for 2 or 3 times after that.

But then it starts its automatic starts once a start my computer after then.

Its really starting to get on my nerves.

Can anyone please give me any suggestions on now this can be fixed

Thanks in advance

bring up live messenger, go to tools, options, sign in, untick "automatically run windows live messenger when i log onto windows" and "allow automatic sign in when connected to the interent" this should also grey out "open windows live messenger main window when windows live messenger starts" apply and ok and that should do the trick for you...let us know if it works for you

its a little tricky what they did... when it fires up allow it to start up. Click the Maximize button, so the messenger window goes full screen, at the top you will see a couple new menu items (top left). File edit... ect... Go through each one and look for general properties or options... anything that will allow you to set the start up option.... its in there somewhere.

but the trick is to force the app to go full screen to get the extra menu drop down lists and from there find the check box that tells it to start when windows starts.

to show the menu bar on the new version

you have to click on the blue ? (on the log in box) with the circle around it, in the drop down list, click beside "show menu bar"...they did make it a little harder for folks to find it by burying it in like for forcing to stop loading, one should be able to follow the steps i posted previously without any trouble
edit for clarification
