I have recently cancelled one of my hotmail accounts due to problems with someone online but Windows Messenger (which I don't use as I use MSN Messenger) keeps logging on with this hotmail address.

I don't want Windows Messenger logging in at all but cannot find a way to stop it.

I've tried setting Program Access and Defaults and unticked the "Enable Access to this Program" and I've gone through the Windows Help and Support Center and tried their suggestions but nothing seems to stop it logging on when I open Outlook Express.

Any ideas :thumbsup:

Hey secretangel

1. click start button-click user account
2. click - change an account
3. Select account from the list
4. On the right hand side, select Manage my network password
5. From the pop-up window, click the account net passport and select remove.
After all this you will be able to sign in to your messenger like the old way by entering your email n password.

David :thumbsup:

David - i'm not sure she wants to remove the whole program - she just wants it to stop logging in automatically - is this correct?

Yes that is correct - just wanted it to stop logging in, particularly under my old msn account.

And thank you DT have carried out your instructions and that has solved my problem.

Thanks too David (medab1) for the advice - that would have been my next step :thumbsup:
