Open MSN messenger and go to the options. UNTICK load at startup.. & voila! ;) :D

Also goto Outlook Express options (if you use it) again UNTICK load msn messenger.

You can uninstall messenger. Go to Start> Run> Type in:

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

I don't recommend this though... It will probably affect your Outlook Express performance. I do what stuy_b suggests myself. That dirty little, ahem, 'fatherless child,' has it's grubhooks in OE real good.

Open Messenger> Tools> Options> 'preferences' tab. Untick the first two options. (see first half of attachment).

Open Outlook Express> Tools> Options> 'general' tab. Untick the fourth item. (see second half of attachment).

Now the only time it should run is when you open Outlook Express... but then only in the background with a little red 'x' on it and it will close out when you close OE.

Thanks Lonman....That little sucker is gone forever. I chose the registry hack. It worked out great. No problems with outlook express...:p

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
