[size=4]WHile working on a friend's son's computer, he is a freshman in college, I noticed that MS Messenger launchs on start up. If you kill it with taskmanager, within a few minutes it is shown as using resourses in taskmanager again.
My question is: How to stop it form launching? I have used msconfig, but it comes right back as checked to load the next start up...tells me it must be in a registry key somewhere.
Thanks for looking and helping me in advance...
