    Double-Click on the Messenger Service. Under the GENERAL Tab you'll see a dialog box for Startup Options. Select DISABLE. I assure you, it's there.

    i appreciate your help man. i followed your instructions but all it does is take me to a service window with a whole bunch of stuff under services and it says to select an item to view descriptions. there is no general tab. i tried looking into every folder. no enable or disable option

    Yes - and one of those services on the right side is named "MESSENGER". That's the one you want to double-click and disable.
