Hmm.. That is surprising. Technically, it should open a browser and login to your hotmail account..
Have you set up hotmail in your microsoft outlook by any chance ?

If you donot want windows messenger , then you can remove it completely from the machine
Also open outlook , go to tools > options > other
and uncheck " enable instant messaging in microsoft outlook "
close outlook

Now check

Yup checked that and it is not enabled!    Very strange.   I think one of the updates that I downloaded a couple of days ago did this, (NOT SP2!)

I would have thought that removing MSN and then installing the latest version (6.2), should fix the proble,
