Live Messenger

When i'm on windows live messenger, and i want to send my webcam to my friend/family member, i click the webcam button, usually it says send webcam, but now why does it automatically make a video call?

Thanks in advance

Which version of LM are you using?
I am using the beta currently, but the previous version would do this if I started the web call before actually making a connection to the other party.
I haven't tried this yet with the beta.

This is happening to me too; I think it is an issue with the new version. The old one that I use on my laptop (14.0.8089) can do the sharing webcam thing just fine. But the the new one on my desktop (14.0.8117) does taht automatic video call thing. Kind of sad =/ I wish I could downgrade, but even when I use the older installer, I'm still stuck with the newer version of Windows Live Messenger. They need a fix!!

How do you stop Live Messenger popping up on start up? I don't want to remove it, just open it when I want it. Was easy to do on XP! Otherwise I think Windows 7 is fine (so far!). Tried Task Manager - Services, but couldn't fine Messenger. Also not in Control Panel - Uninstall (not as I want to)....
