    hi there, i'll like to know why windows messenger is programmed to be autologin, even in the background, and even i check 'not load when windows start'.
    if i remove the login pass in using run--> userpassword etc.
    will it stop it autologin?

    Do you use Outlook Express by any chance? There's an option within OE that boots Windows Messenger when you open it.

    The only other thing would be to check all methods of start-up (registry etc)

    Also there is another option (aside from startup with windows) which says allow to run in background......i think, not used it for a while
