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
