Windows Live Messenger StartUp Issue

Hi there, im using Windows 7 x64 and i recently installed windows live messenger 2011 (15.4.3555.308). My problem is that even if i have the "start messenger on computer startup" box ticked it still doesn't start when i log into windows. I checked the startup tab on msconfig and i can see it there by the way. When i try to start it manualy it starts with no problem and it connets fast, my only problem is that it's not starting my my windows start up. I tried reintalling it but nothing changed. Any suggestions??

Hello Sek7oR, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if placing or creating a shortcut of the file below in your Startup folder in the Start Menu instead may work better or not.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe

Hope this helps,
Shawn

you could try creating a new user account to test if it starts up on start up.

this is very strange. do you have ccleaner installed? have you deleted the start entry of WLM from there?

No i've never used CCleaner either.. it's the first time that it's happening to me as well, i'm using the same version of messenger on this platform for more than a year. Before four days i did a format on my disk and when i intalled messenger back through windows live essentials it just didn't start on windows startup.. :S
