Click Start>>Run
Type services.msc and hit OK/Enter.
Find the messenger service in the list, right click over it and choose Properties.
Change the Startup Type to "Disabled."

or if interested in doing this windows way ( GUI)

then click
 START->SETTINGS-CONTROL PANEL->ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS->SERVICES
LOOK FOR  MESSENGER SERVICE and right click on it and choose properties.  now U have choice to stop , disable /manual / auto  etc

Command prompt method  is

click start -> Run->   services.msc /s      <-  not " /s "

good luck

oops, i forgot the switch.,(/s) which i believe allows you to stop the service by right clicking it. you can still disable the service without the switch, though.
