Help - How do I remove the user names from the log-in

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger (More info?)

Bunch of kids came to our home and logged on to MSN Messenger.
Now we have several e-mail addresses on the log-in list.
Is there any easy way to remove all of them? Please help. Thanks.

    Greetings Okie,

    To remove these names, click the Start Button, then click the Control Panel. Then, click
    User Accounts in the Control Panel. Select your account name, and then on the left side of
    the screen, under Related Tasks, click 'Manage my Network Passwords'. In the window that
    opens, you can remove an account by clicking the passport you wish to delete [denoted by
    (Passport)], and then click the 'Remove' button. For more detailed instructions and
    screenshots on this procedure, see here:

    I have the opposite problem, how do you place the e-mail addresses into the
    book? Thank you!

    I have the Windows XP Pro with the SP2 running.

    As I tried to follow through your advice, I see in User Accounts have only
    two users,
    myself as the 'administrator' and the 'guest' user. I don't find any users
    of
    Windows Messenger (and MSN Messenger 6.2) users here, so that I can remove
    them.
    I only see them at the Messenger Log-In entry box.
    How do I remove them from the Messenger entry list? Do I need to remove
    the .NET
    or do I need to look through the Windows Registry?

    You missed one more step. Once at your user account; click on the your user
    name. Now look up at the left of the display and under Related tasks, click
    on Manage My Network Passwords. Repeat on the guest if it has been activated
    and do same.
