    I have Outlook Express 6 and it keeps running Messenger whenever I
    open it which I don't want it to do.

    I have been into Tools, Options and General and unchecked the box that
    says to automatically log on to Windows Messenger.

    When I go back into OE though it still runs Messenger automatically.
    Anyone know how to fix this and get rid of Messenger?

    Cheers

    John

    Yeah, you have to edit some config files and also you can disable it in
    sys/local/run, but I've forgotten really how. I suggest you switch to Ubuntu
    and forgetaboutit.
