Automatic sign-in won't turn off


  • I have continually tried to get Windows Messenger to quit signing me in automatically.  I've gone into Options and unchecked the automatically sign-in box, I've gone to the sign-out screen and unchecked the "remember me" box.  I've even gone so far as to select the forget me link.  No matter what I do, everytime I sign into MSN, windows messenger signs me in (and the options that I've de-selected are still de-selected).  This is getting very aggravating, does anyone have any suggestions?

    Greetings Antonio,

    To turn off the automatic login, so it can't login by itself, click the Start Button, then
    click the Control Panel. Then, click User Accounts in the Control Panel. Select your account
    name, and then on the left side of the screen, under Related Tasks, click 'Manage my Network
    Passwords'. In the window that opens, click the Passport.Net\* (Passport) entry and click

  • I have the same problem above.  In my office i got a new computer.  On my internet explorer there was a MSN messenger icon that i clicked. Accidently I linked my email account to this computer.  How do I get it off!  This computer has resticed use meaning i dont think i can uninstall or install a new program. What do I do?
