how to disable msn messenger into your hotmail

how to disable msn messenger live into your email

I've been having hard time to find how to disable windows live messenger from my email.The problem that was causing was...

when I signed into my msn live messenger from windows, my msn live messenger signed out automatically each time I was in my hotmail account and my hotmail page would have my msn live messenger signed in.

after a couple of hours of research and realizing that some of us had this problem.I've found a solution to fix this frustrating thing and it end up to be something ridiculous.....i was blind folded! but anyways...

It turn out to be Windows Live Web Messenger for your "hotmail account" and windows live messenger for your "actual windows".

Follow the following pics and this should fix this problem of your msn live messenger....

thanks for your time and good luck my friends.

also I've came across other fix about this but didn't work for me but might work for you if all the above didn't.

1) Open up Internet Explorer
2) Click on Tools > "Manage Add-ons" > "Enable or Disable Add-ons". 
3) When the window opens, click on the drop-down tab at the top and select "Add-ons that run without requiring permission".
4) Scroll down to "Windows Live" and disable the file "MSGSC1~1.dll".
5) You will have to restart Internet Explorer.

It still signs me back in every time I check my e-mail. This doesn't actually solve anything.

Your "other fix" is for another problem, some users, when checking hotmail, would have the actual MSN application launch. That's the fix for that.

How old is this solution? I don't see anywhere it saying "Sign out of Messenger" -- Go figure Microsoft probably removed that link so out lives would be a little harder.

HOLY CROW! That easy?! I wished I would have found your post three weeks ago, before I threw my laptop on the ground and broke it. It was REALLLLLLY pissing me off. Now I don't have a laptop. Just a PC.

Doesn't work for me. Still signs me into Messenger, Every Single Time I start Hotmail. I thought it was only Only that did this push marketing crap? If I was interested in using Messenger, I'd be using it. I'm not, and don't appreciate it being pushed on me just because I choose to use Hotmail.
