Windows Live Messenger Driving Me Crazy

Hey to whom may be reading this and thanks for your time,

My WLM keeps insisting on opening whenever i return to my desktop via minimising my internet or itunes or just simple document windows, if i go to desktop MSN pops open for no reason.

I've reinstalled many times and its always the same. It's infuriating but i need the program, so do any of you know how to stop this from happening? :)

I had the same problem until I uncheck the box to run WLM automatically. However, it still runs whenever I sign in to my Hotmail account. Any way to turn this off or just uninstall WLM?
