    I've using the searched but couldn't find what i was looking for.

    On the first time i start outlook xp, messenger starts also. I tried xp-antispy but that's only for Outlook express. How can i prevent messenger starting with outlook?

    anyone know a trick?

    do u use messenger?

    if u don't consider gettig rid of it.

    to get rid of it:

    Click Start > Run and in the Open: box type the following command (press OK when done):

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    just cut and paste it. :D

    yep, i use it a lot ( got 3 accounts :) very easy that way)

    I know how to get rid of it but that's not what i want. I don't want it to start with outlook because when i log the app. closes itself. and when i start it manualy ther are no probs

    Rename your Messenger folder, and that will stop it from running w/ Outlook and still allow you to use it.
