I have a problem with the same email address logging into a windows live account and also a .net account. . Whenever I start windows messenger it kicks into the .net component of messenger and is not the same as the straight windows live account event though it uses the same username and password.
 I want to use windows messenger without the .net in the background and want to find a way to unhook that address .from .net

I am not sure whether to uninstalll the window messenger and reinstall or if there is a way to disassociate it from the .net part.

I actually figured it out myself. Window messenger and Windows live messenger are different networks,  different program and cannot run simultaneously even though they can use the same login info. The icons (Little blue man) look almost identical. Thererin lay my confusion. Somehow Messenger had been downloaded and replaced Live Messenger. This has been undone and working as desired.
