Hi guys I have uninstalled msn messenger completely or so I thought...I keep getting the msn messenger icon popping up on my desktop tray when I load outlook express 6.
I have unticked the "automatically log on box" in options but it still comes up.
It is not doing anything its just [bleep] annoying :tazz: ;)

Hi Mr. G.!

Pesky little critter huh?

Give this a whirl:

Start -> Run -> msconfig

Under Startup in the resulting dialog box, look for an entry something like:

msmsgs

Uncheck the box, reboot, and see if it goes away.
