Is ther anyway to get messenger not to load everytime I run IE or Outlook Express? It is frustrating. Then, everytime it runs it puts itself back in the startup group. I have removed from ther at least 50 times. I do not use MSN Messenger, so why do we have to put up with it?
Neither did I actually. No big deal. Funny how you can be a PC tech, use a program for years, then be temporarily befuddled by a new verion. Anyway, the regedit fix mentioned in the link above does indeed work, but if you are using Outlook Express, be prepared for a much longer load time. I guess it is searching for MSN Messenger. It does load, but takes a bit longer. I deleted the key I entered just because of that. I just installed Office XP. I here Outlook will disable that, but I haven't looked yet.
