    Messenger loads (OE 6)

    When I start OE, Messenger loads despite having it unchecked in Tool>Options>General. It doesn't connect to the server, but the process into memory and the system tray. If I attempt a right-click exit, it says it cannot as another app is using it.

    How can I keep it from loading?

    Bruce...go to the Messenger program itself...somewhere in its' Options' tab, I believe there is a box to uncheck 'load on startup of Windows' ...or words to that effect. I don't know the exact wording as I no longer have MSN Messenger on my own system. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Hi, Lons!

    The area to which you are referring is already unchecked and Messenger does not load at start up. It loads when I open OE and will not allow me to exit whilst OE is open.
