I want to set up MSN so that it will not launch upon Startup; I don't want to uninstall it (yet). It's becoming a bit of nuisance and I want to ... kind of disable it. How do I do this?

Do you mean loading it or signing you in? There's an option under the 'General' tab for signing you in upon startup (or not).

Do you mean Messenger?

If so, just rename the folder in Windaz to 'messengeroff' (or something).

Huh ... I didn't know that. I need to check it when I get home (I need to do this on my home computer) ...

Open MSN Messenger, Tools, Options, Sign In and there you will find check boxes for various options for start up and signing... this is for MSN Live Messenger Smile

If you can't find the appropriate options, a simple bit of registry editting should do it.

Open regedit.exe and browse to Current User> Software> Microsoft> Windows> CUrrent Version> Run

Just delete the value for msmgs.exe or anything that looks like it obviously relates to messenger.

Easiest way:
Goto Start -> Run (or press Win+R), then type msconfig, press Ok, then in the prompted window, go to Startup tab, and deselect all the programs that you don't want to run on startup. Press Ok, then Restart later, and you're done Smile

Hope it helped!
