Open MSN Messenger.
Click on "Tools", "Options".
CHECK the white square: Automatically run Messenger when I log on to Windows.
Click on OK.
It is supposed to reappear now the next time you reboot.
If not, try to reinstall Messenger.
But it is a good idea to do not enable too much programs at startup to avoid a possible CRASH.
In fact, if you choose to open Messenger WHEN you need it REALLY, not a bad idea after all.
I got msn messenger 6.2 and before loggin off i leave it open and an icon appears in the notification area that confirms that is open.
after when i shut down the PC and turn it on the next day, the messenger is closed.
But before it didn't do that!!!
How can i keep it open?
