Hi i've just set up a user account (XP) for my wife after she deciphered my password and was caught reading my emails :eek: , i had messenger automatically collect my hotmail account you see.

So after setting up a hotmail account for her and user account etc. i cant even start messenger in her setup is this not possible to have two different messenger accounts on one machine.

re: messenger

First you need to disable automatic login

Go to User Accounts in the Windows XP Control Panel (Start, Control Panel).
On the Advanced tab, click Manage Passwords.
In Stored User Names and Passwords, select Passport.Net\*, and click Remove.
This does not delete your Passport, but removes its connection with your computer.

Click Close, and then click OK in the dialog box.

Now your wife can setup her messenger

re:

If she has limited user right, try to give her temporarly admin rights, then look if it's working, if not maybe you can delete her profile c:\documument and settings\%username%. maybe that will reactivate her messenger
