  2. If you mean Outlook Express rather than Outlook, go to Tools | Options and
    check the box to "Automatically log on to Windows Messenger".

    How to prevent Windows messenger from starting at Outlook Express starting
    up?

  9. To prevent MS Messenger from loading with OE you must do BOTH of these
    things if you don't want to edit the Registry:

    In Tools | Options uncheck the option to automatically logon to Messenger.

    AND

    In View | Layout uncheck the Contacts Pane.

    OR

    Go to:

    Go to Start | Run and type

    Regedit

    Go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    Add a New, DWORD value called Hide Messenger and set the value to 2.
    (This step is required to prevent a long delay when opening OE with the
    Contacts pane enabled)

    To just stop it from running at all follow this advice from Kelly:

    "Only 3 Registry edits are required to stop Messenger and get rid of the
    delay in OE. Start/Run/Regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client

    Add the following values as New, DWord Values:

    PreventRun
    PreventAutoRun

    Set the value of each of these to 1

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    Add a New, DWORD value called Hide Messenger and set the value to 2.
    (This step is required to prevent a long delay when opening OE with the
    Contacts pane enabled)


    You can also stop the spam without disabling Messenger. In Messenger select
    Tools | Options and open the Privacy tab. In MSN Messenger 5 there a check
    box "Only people on My Allow List can see my status and send me messages"
    that you can check (turn on). In Windows Messenger 4.7 you can select the
    "All other users" in My Allow List and move it to My Block List. In both
    cases the popups should stop and you can still IM with your friends.
