    Heya,

    The only step I could remember in order to do this was to rename the Messenger folder, "MessengerOFF". I know there are a few registry keys that you can change / add in order to stop this. Sadly, renaming the folder MessengerOff didn't do squat, as MSN Messenger keeps opening up in the contacts for Outlook Express. What can I do to stop this? MSN isn't my default messenging program, and the only thing that I saw that would remotely affect it was for AIM, and that option was unchecked.

    Tools, options, General tab, uncheck the box that says automatically log on to windows messenger.

    See again I don't have that, that's referring to the "and the only thing that I saw that would remotely affect it was for AIM, and that option was unchecked". That's what I was looking for and I haven't seen it.

    This reg file should do the trick (I hope)
