    Since installing IE8 (XP pro, sp3), and windows updates, Windows Live
    Messenger ( version 2009, build 14.0.8064.206), will no longer
    sign in. The ONLY change in the system, was installing
    IE8, (from IE7) and the Windows Live Messenger stopped signing on
    With every boot or restart, I MUST supply my email and password to
    sign into Windows Live Messenger.
    Remember Me, Remember my Password, and Sign me in Automatically, is not

    Thanks for the link an for the tool to fix my problem - It DID fix the
    Whatever you did in the fix, should be integrated with IE8 installations
    (i.e. Microsoft, since it appears they screwed it up).
    Thanks Again,

    Your fix is not working for me. Windows Live Messenger retains my email
    address as well as my password, but I must manually sign in. The correct box
    is checked in Options (Allow automatic sign in when connected to the

    XP Home (SP3). All updates. NO Yahoo, Google or anything else toolbar.
    Any ideas, please?

    I installed Yahoo messenger recently, but hated it! so uninstalled it and
    that's when I had this problem even though I never installed the toolbar.
    Your fix worked great!
    Thank you

    This did not work for me. I do not have any toolbars other than Google. On
    top of that, IE is not my primary / default browser.

    I'm running Win7 x64 HP with WLM 2009 build 14.0.8089.726.

    What did not work for you? You aren't quoting anything from what must be
    an old thread. Meanwhile the MS Communities search index is FUBAR so
    nobody there can know either. Someone else who is willing to dig out some
    context from Google Groups or by using a Message-ID from your References:
    header may be able to figure out what you are referring to.

    Good luck

    @axxxtw - I have the same issue. Username and password are both saved, yet,
    despite selecting "allow automatic sign in when connected" I must manually
    click to sign in. Did you find any solution to this?

    I have the same problem.
    When I start my PC, Mesenger is started, but it does NOT sign me in automatically.

    Sign me in automatically is 'on'
    Messenger remembers my login and password. (when I start Messenger myself, then it DOES sign me in automatically)

    I uninstalled Messenger, installed a newer version (beta version2011, Built 15.4.3002.810) and still have the same problem.
    I uninstalled Messenger and selected 'Repair'. Still it won't sign me in automatically when i boot my pc.

    I got a feeling it could have something to do with Messenger starting up to fast (during PC boot up), so the network is not online yet, resulting in Messenger not being able to sign-in. (I have a Solid State Intel X25-E harddisk, giving very fast boot-up time)
    I run Windows 7 Ultimate (with classic shell installed)

    Windows 7 is S... I liked XP so much more.
    Why did M$ have to change the whole user interface ?
    - Control panel is so big, it looks like the internet space command center.
    - Windows explorer uses more space to display a file or folder then the starship 'Endeavour'
    - 'UP' button missing.
    - Start menu is terrible.
    - Getting permission to run a downloaded .exe file needs MS approved engineering knowledge of reverse cracking.
    - I can go on for ever, but lets solve the Messenger Sign-in bug first :)
