Annoying Messenger Pop-Ups



I got a annoying problem. I have a dialup internet connection and i use the MSN messenger/email thing.
But whenever i disconnect from internet I get pop-up messages from windows messenger every minute approx.,
telling me this:

"Signing in to .NET Messenger Service Failed because the service could not be found. Please make sure that you are connected to the internet. [Retry] [Cancel] "

That sucks ass.

i've installed XP on my computer approx. 15 times before (i reinstall often...), and this annoying thing have only appeared
the last 2 or 3 times i installed XP. had no problem before...

Have anyone got an idea?

That's not really a bug you're experiencing. Is auto-connect/auto-reconnect enabled on messenger? Try signing out before you disconnect your internet connection. Also make sure Messenger doesn't think you have a LAN connection instead of modem.
I have version 4.5 (the one included in XP)

i can't find any auto-connect/auto-reconnect options...

the weird thing is that i could just disconnect the internet connection before... didn't have to sign out or anything...
I don't think it should change anything, but try to update to 4.6+addin, be sure to install Messenger Plus before and disable the ads, then update to 4.6...
check here:

on the desktop, right click on "my network places", then properties, advanced menu, dial-up preferences....

then uncheck your isp. This is the auto dial settings that override all other IE settings. this is a very annoying feature XP has. Had me stumped for 2 days with my isp autodialing.
pc_tek: can you explain that once more?

what do you mean by right click my desktop options?
oppps...i messed up sorry. ill edit it, look at it again.
Thanks man, I've never noticed that advanced list in Network Connections before...

Hope this works...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
