Hi,
How do I get rid of the "Windows Messenger" "not signed
in" ? This shows up in my system tray a boot-up.
Thanks,
Bill NJ

Start the Messenger and in Tools > Options disable "Run this program
when Windows starts" and "Allow this program to run in the
background". Close the Messenger.
Run REGEDIT.EXE and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Outlook Express. Insert a new
DWORD entry
Hide Messenger
here and set it to a value of
2
