msn messenger
« on: Sep 22, 2006, 16:57 »
my daughter has set up her account on the PC at home.

But how the hell do i stop the Pc openning her account everytime we open an internet connection.

Everytime I look the defaults have reset back to "run messenger when I log into windows/ open messenger main window when windows starts."

How do I change the defaults so that it only opens when she wants it to open?

Open Messenger and go to:

Tools > options

Select 'general'

then untick the "Allow automatic sign in when connected to the Internet" box

To prevent MSN Messenger from opening automatically when you turn your computer on:


Open Messenger, click Tools and then Options.
Select the General tab.
Remove the tick from the box that reads Automatically run Messenger when I log on to Windows by clicking the box once.
Click OK.

maybe you have to go in under her user name then alter it, have no idea really just guessing LOL

Have you tried the new windows live messenger?  I downloaded it but now have the problem of two messengers opening and two user names, have stuck to the new one as it gives a very user friendly my space account too.

on the subject of messenger, whenever i have tried adding my messenger id to my profile on this forum it hasn't worked.

then untick the "Allow automatic sign in when connected to the Internet" box

But that box is already unticked?

Personally I'd untick all the ones under the 'sign in' section there.
