    Please help, I am trying to stop messenger from dialing up automatically.
    Friends tell me that I am always online, even when I haven't signed in. I;m
    not aware of messanger being enabled, and I do not recieve pop ups as per
    usual to let me know someone is trying to conact me.
    My friend however says that she gets all of my conversations popping up on
    her home computer?????? I have used her computer before for Messenger.

    I have tried following the instructions on but to no avail..

    Instruction as follows:

    How can I stop MSN Messenger from starting automatically?
    Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
    In the left pane, click General.
    Under Sign In, clear the Automatically run Messenger when I log on to
    Windows check box.
    Click OK.

    When I click on Tools menu then options there is no "General" or "Sign in".

    Any assistance would be much appreciated as this problem is driving me mad.

    It certainly souns as if her computer is automatically loggiing on with your
    ID and password. Does she multiple user IDs on her system one of which
    might be doing i? Has she logged on to messenger with an Id other than
    users since the problem started?

  3. You might want to post this question in a newsgroup that supports
    Messenger - we support Media Center here and aren't Messenger experts.
