Please disable the useless, broken AVG signature; it
serves absolutely no purpose, and does not get
automatically snipped in replies.

As for your problem:

Copy/paste the following into notepad and save it as
a *.reg file. Merge the file into your registry by
double clicking on it. Note that EVERYTHING between
the [ and ] MUST be one line only, and there must be a
blank line at the end.


***** <-- omit this line
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Mess enger]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Mess enger\Client]
"PreventRun"=dword:00000001
"PreventAutoRun"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Offi ce\10.0\Outlook\InstantMessaging]
"ForceDisableIM"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express]
"Hide Messenger"=dword:00000002

***** <-- omit this line

also if you go under /run/ msconfig/ selective settings then startup
setting scoll and turn of check box for the aol messenger. after next
reboot it will not com on at startup

I would use that if you wanted to use the feature but just not have it
come on every time you startup your pc.
