Hi.

Could anybody tell me how to disable "MSN Messenger 6.2" at startup please.

I have had a go at preventing it from starting up by unchecking its entry in "startup" (through "System Configuration Utility"). However, when booting up the system again the entry is re-checked and it starts up again as usual.

How do I overcome this and effectively prevent the program from automatically opening at system start up?

Thanks.

Open MSN Messenger and open the Tools menu then select Options.  In the Options window under the General tab clear the check-box beside "Automatically run Messenger when I log on to Windows".  Then select OK.
