Windows 7: Windows Live Messenger starts everytime I log in to WL.

Windows Live Messenger starts everytime I log in to WL.

Hey, guys. (& girls)

I've got something I can't solve:

Everytime I log in to my Windows Live online to check my Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger starts on the taskbar. It does the same when I log in on Technet Plus. (Wich also uses a Windows Live-ID). It only starts Windows Live Messenger, it doesn't log in on it.

I pretty annoyed by it and want to disable it.

Thanx allready.

Hi ronalde, it must be set to startup when 7 starts,turn it off by going to the Start button type in msconfig and open it go to the Startup button on the top and click it this will open up a window with all the programs that open up every time you start windows,Untick the programs that you don't want to start, and click apply and get out of there and restart now or later. Hope this helps.

Anthony, everything is off, the problem is not that WLM starts with Windows, but with login on the site from Windows Live.

Jfar, same as above, WLM isn't in my msconfig.

And Swarfega, I do use it sometimes, but not everytime I log in for my email.

Thanks anyways for the quick reply's.

I've looked under the taskbar-properties, under startmenu-properties, WLM-properties. Can't seem to find anything...

shak 10, thankx for your post, but that isn't the problem.
It doesn't start with Windows, it only starts as soon as I log in on hotmail.com or Technet Plus with my Windows Live ID.

Windows Live Messenger help
Windows Live Messenger likes to randomly crash whenever I receive a response to an IM that I send. It doesn't do it any other time. I have tried to uninstall, restart, reinstall about 15 times now, with the same results almost immediately. I use McAfee virus scan software and have a clean report...
