    Not sure which is the most appropriate NG but here goes....

    I have MSN Explorer 9.0 (w/ MSIE 6.0) along with MSN Messenger 7.0 running
    on WinXP (SP2) Home edition. I also have Outlook Express 6.0. When I launch
    OE6 it launches Windows Messenger 4.7 which conflicts with MSN Messenger
    7.0. I get messages saying that Messenger is signed on another computer and
    to re-sign in

    Is there any way of resolving the conflict?

    Yes, this kept Win Messenger from being launched by OE6 and appearing in
    the system tray but I found I needed to turn it off using MSCONFIG also. It
    was running in the background with each reboot.

    Thanks to all for your help
