    When I start my computer and am on the internet, Messenger signs me in without me entering my password or anything, I turned off, auto sign in, and it still does it, an old version of msn on my computer keeps signing me in, please, how do I turn this off?

  2. Greetings,

    To fix this, if you're referring to Windows 95, 98, ME, or 2000, just right-click the
    Messenger icon, click "Sign out", then right-click the icon again, choose "Sign in...", enter
    your login and password that and click the checkbox to have your account automatically sign
    in. If you then don't want any account logging on, you can then sign out, click "Sign In..."
    enter your login and password, *don't* click the checkbox and then sign in. After you sign
    out once more, the automatic login will be gone.

    If you're referring to Windows XP, Click the Start Button, then click the Control Panel.
    Then, click User Accounts in the Control Panel. Select your account name, and then on the
    left side of the screen, under Related Tasks, click 'Manage my Network Passwords'. In the
    window that opens, click the Passport.Net\* (Passport) entry and click 'Remove'. Then
    restart Messenger and it will no longer auto login.
