Windows Live Messenger

When i run windows live messenger, it comes up with two tabs, one displaying my name and status and another for the main window.
I was just wondering if it was possible to get rid of the first tab so that there is only one.
Cheers

I have noticed this, but there that is the reason why there is no icon on the system tray - to completely close messenger, instead of using the system tray icon just cross off first 'tab'.
There is not a workaround that I know to stop the main program showing as an extra Window on the taskbar.

if you run messenger in in vista compatibility mode the icon will go to the systray like it was in vista
