I used to have the same problem. The "other location" you are signed onto is "windows messenger". This seems to be a common problem on XP even if you have the options set to NOT sign you on automatically. Lavasoft, the people that make Ad-Aware have a plugin that will fix the problem. You can install the plugin on Ad-Aware SE, enable it and the problem should go away but you can still sign on the MSN messenger whenever you would like. Lavasoft says that this problem occurs when you open outlook express but it was happening to me whenever I went on line. Click or paste this link and go the the Add-ons page and click on the
OE-W messenger control on the list. I hope this helps. Don't confuse this with the messenger control add-on, That is different.
I recently noticed this new process in the background - msmsgs.exe
As long as there is an internet connection, I am logged onto MSN Messenger. People can see me online but I have no clue.
Also, if my internet connection drops (wireless), it does not log back.
Either way, I am looking to remove this process.
So, when I start up MSN Messenger, XP complains of "...signed on another location..."
How to remove the "hidden" MSN Messenger logon?
Any replies appreciated.
