I'm finding Windows messenger logging in automatically dispite attempts to stop it. Within it's options AND Outlook Express options, I've unchecked the automatic login, but it still logs in !

I've now blocked access with McAfee.

Any reason to be paranoid ?

You should be able to find some help in this article from, "Ask Leo": How do I stop MSN Messenger from starting automatically and logging me in?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
