    You can edit the current location (File->Preferences->Location Preferences) and on the instant messaging tab change the value for "connect" from At notes logon to manually

    There is a service running on the PC which controls this.  Use the control Panel, Services to disable the service.  You can also stop it from loading in the future

    This can be done by doing as "daj uk" suggested by : start --> Run --> services.msc --> "Lotus Notes Single Logon" service => dubble click => stop + set to disabled. Or Run => net stop "Lotus Notes Single Logon" to stop + sc.exe from Windows Ressource Kit ==> sc.exe config "Lotus Notes Single Logon" start= disabled

    But the cleanest way is to do this from within Lotus Notes.
    Start notes goto File - security - user security (type in pass again) uncheck "Login to Notes using your operating system login" see attached screenshots

    Hope this helps, good luck!
