Windows Messenger Automatically Sign Up

By picses ·
I am using Windows XP and using default Windows Messenger for contact/communication.
I am facing a problem; whenever I connect to internet my Windows Messenger automatically signs me, which I don?t want. For preventing sign up Windows Messenger I uncheck the option in the Outlook Express relating to messenger i.e. ?Automatically log on to Windows Messenger? but it still signs me whenever I connect to internet.
Pleas tell me how I can prevent the Windows Messenger from automatically sign up.

This should help:

PreventAutoRun : Setting prevents Windows messenger/msn messenger from automatically launching itself.

PreventRun : Prevents launching of the s/w completely. You cannot manually launch it, even if you wish :)

1) Open Windows Messenger (Double click the Windows Messenger Icon in the tool tray.)

2) Go to Tools | Options | Preferences and deselect "Run this program when Windows starts".

3) Click 'OK' to save your changes then Close Windows Messenger.

4) Reboot your computer. After reboot, Windows Messenger will have to be manually started via Start | Programs or from a shortcut.
