    there is a option in the MSN config box to stop it starting every time windows does...

    i personal think MSN sucks ass big time, so i just deleted it.. there is a guide to getting rid of it in the XPE program tweak section

    Go to C: WINDOWS/inf/sysoc.inf open this with note pad.
    You'll see a line that reads:
    msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7

    Remove the hide eg.

    msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7

    Windows Messenger will now appear in Add or Remove Programs under (add remove windows components) then remove it. You can always reinstall it the same way.

    Remove messenger

    Kryptonic,

    it is your choice, but Trillian still can't warn you when you have new mail without having to look at it/ hover the mouse on it and suspend other progs. I personnally really like Msn Messenger's way to pop-up a nice little and gentle window in the sys. tray, I like being surprised when new mail arrives :)
    You can tweak Messenger so that the minimum is displayed.
    See for yourself jpegs I've attached.

    Some people like to do it the hard way, but i like the easy way:

    to stop messenger start with windows, simply open the messenger window -> tools -> options -> preference -> uncheck run when windows starts.

    you are talkin about Windows Messenger right?

    The first paragraph explains the problem and why your solution doesn't work.
