MSN Premium

I somehow got stuck with MSN Premium as my e-mail server. When I launch the MSN Premium Icon, it also launches MSN Messenger. I cant seem to find anywhere where I can disable the Messnager startup. Normally theres a place where it will give you an optin whether to have it launch at startup or not. Any ideas?

Messenger launching with Premium

In reply to: MSN Premium

Actually, when you sign in to Premium, Messenger WILL start too. You cannot deactivate that. What you can do is have the option in Messenger to sign you in offline so that when you launch the software Messenger will sign you in offline and then you decide whether you want to change your status.
