    Windows XP? Windows Messenger running?

    do this:

    press Ctrl-Alt-Del (or right-click in an empty part of
    your taskbar and choose Task Manager), click the Processes tab, look for
    msmsgs.exe, select
    if it it's there and choose End Process. Then you can remove Windows
    Messenger correctly by
    clicking the start button, then click Run and type in (copy-paste if you

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    Then click OK.

    Messenger will then be uninstalled. For more detailed instructions and
    screenshots, go to,

    now do this:

    In Outlook Express, click Options on the Tools menu.
    On the General tab, click to clear the Automatically log on to Windows
    Messenger check box.
    Click OK

    Why did you not trim this signature? Just curious; most seasoned posters do

    While I am prone to "fixing" top posting, as I did in this post, I am not
    prone to haggling over it; normally, anymore. But you also posted this in
    response to my response to an article. Hmmm. Oh! I see! You are using the
    web interface to the news groups:

    X-Newsreader: Microsoft CDO for Windows 2000

    One of the main reasons I hate web forums is the flat model of posting
    responses. Properly threaded responses put the articles in proper
    relationship. If you had post your response properly, directly to the
    person seeking help, it would not look like you were responding to me. And
    a proper news client, or even MS Outlook Express, would have threaded that
    message directly under the post it was answering.

    The World Wide Web is not the only way to view the Internet...nor is it
    always the best way, either.
