Hmmm... I recall that checkbox for an older version of outlook now that I think 
of it again. Outlook express has something different than outlook 2002. Silly 
me. I usually remove msn messenger from the registry so it doesn't start up at 
all. The registry key is
HKey_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run and then 
tabbing over to the values lists msn messenger.

  I looked at my version of OE and there is no checkbox having to do with 
Messenger. Here's my OE version:

    With outlook express, In the tools menu, click options. On the general tab, 
you should find a checkbox for msn messenger loading. Uncheck that. It will say 
something to the effect of run msn messenger when outlook express starts.

      I have a problem with Outlook Express on one of my computers. When I am 
in Outlook Express, there is an item which shows up about me not being signed 
into Windows Messenger. It also shows up in the Outlook Express options. It 
doesn't show up on the other computer, even though I am running the same 
software on both computers.

      I do not have Windows Messenger installed, and it doesn't show up in the 
control panel under add or remove programs.

      How do I get Windows Messenger disassociated with my Outlook Express 

      Thank you.
