    I don't use this software so can't confirm, but there has been a place inside Options to turn off the “launch at Windows start”.

    In your case, the picture shows no menu bar, so start with pressing the Alt key, then:

    Tools | Options
    General tab | Uncheck “Automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on to Windows”.

    I don't use "live" either but it seems like you could check the "sign in automatically" check box?

    ( or don't you have a Live ID number? )

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Open the program and look for Preferences or Options and uncheck any box that says Start With Windows or something similar.

    Open Windows Live Messenger. Tools > Options > General and make sure there are no check marks in the appropriate boxes

    As ever....many thanks guys for the feed back. As the attachment shows, I clicked on the tab indicated and the menu bar appeared enabl;ing me to follow the directions given and hopefully when I next boot up the sign in frame will not appear. I don't know how WLM came to be on the computer as I have never used it! Perhaps it was installed when I recently had the C drive wiped and XP 2003 put on. Is it maybe an integral part of that version? Don't know but thanks a lot. Dave

    You could always uninstall it from Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs (Look for stuff starting "Windows Live...")
