    Hi Guys,

    How do I disable Windows Messenger from starting up when I startup Outlook Express? I tried doing it from he registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Hide Messenger, then changing the value to 2) But that doesn't work, is there somewhere else I can go into and modify? Windows Messenger is version 4.7.2005

    Thanks in advance

    P.S. I do not use or even have installed MSN Messenger.

    there is an option in outlook to diasble it, otherwise use this:

    Uninstall messenger

    To do so click run. Then Type:
    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    or go into program files\messenger and rename the file to "MessengerOFF" and that should take care of it.
