I know the general question of killing YM at startup has been answered elsewhere, but what I want to know is this: I have multiple accounts on my system. One for me, one for my fiance, and one for our son. She is the only one who uses YM, so can I have YM startup in her account, but not in mine or our son's?

Knowing me, it's probably something incredibly simple that I've overlook. :whistling:

Thanks in advance!

Hello Windsinger sorry for the delayed reply. Your post must have been late at night then got barred under the posts most of the people that help out here do not look past the first page. I found the post on a comb though the posts I have not read.

First you would disable the startup option on Yahoo Messenger itself.

Then in the user you want Yahoo Messenger to startup in. Copy a shortcut of yahoo Messenger and Paste it into the startup folder under all programs of that user.
