Every time I start my system Windows Live Messenger pops up and prompts me to sign in. I would prefer to manually open the program when I'd like to use it, not every time my system boots. Any suggestions on how to disable this feature?

Sign in to Messenger.

After it opens, click on Tools/Options/Sign In.

UNCHECK Automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on to Windows.

Click APPLY to save the change.
