    Windows Live Messenger starts up every time I access my Hotmail account. I
    have no use for Live Messenger and it's very annoying that it runs every time
    I check my email account. I have it configured so it does not load when I
    start Windows. How can I set Live Messenger so it only loads if and when I
    want to run the program?

    If you are referring to checking your email in Windows Live Mail (Desktop
    not Web version) then you would go to options then uncheck the box next to
    Automatically log on to Windows Live Messenger. If you already have it set
    not to run at startup this should prevent it from being started when you
    check your mail.

    Hi,

    This happens all the time here too!

    In WLM version 2009 i have the first two options unchecked:
    - starting WLM after starting windows
    - automatically starting when connected to the internet
    (translated from my own language)

    The thing is, that i can browse the internet for hours, no problem.
    But once i visit www.hotmail.com then i noticed that WLM starts itselfs.

    My computer is slow, and therefore i don't want to start WLM from itself.
    Only when I want to use it. Is there any solution for this problem?

    heian

  4. Greetings,

    This is a feature actually. When you visit Hotmail, they use Messenger to display whether or
    not your hotmail/e-mail contacts are online. If Messenger isn't running, it starts up
    automatically to provide this "feature".

    That said, you can block this from happening in Internet Explorer itself. To do so, open up
    Internet Explorer and choose the Tools menu. Then if
    you're using IE7, choose Manage Add-ons and Enable or Disable Add-ons. If you're using IE8,
    just choose Manage Add-ons.

    Show the entries that run without requiring permission and the specific entry you'll want to
    disable is "Windows Live", which corresponds to the \Program Files\Windows
    Live\msgsc.14.0.8089.0726.dll file and CLSID/Class ID is
    {E1771B7F-98BE-407F-BA67-AA16ADA5D0C5}. You may need to show the various columns to find the
    exact one (there will be multiple 'Windows Live' entries). In IE8 you can also double-click
    each entry for the full information to show.

    After you've found it, choose the button to Disable it and Messenger will no longer be
    started by any Microsoft websites. Be aware however that if/when Messenger is updated, this
    may be need to be done again (and will be a different file and CLSID). Additionally you may
    want to disable any other "Messenger" items listed, depending on what you have installed.
