    I have Windows Messenger 5.0.
    How can I get it to start automatically as soon as I go on-line. At present I seem to have to manually start Messenger each time.
    Happy Christmas y'all.

    I'm running XP pro. I know this works: launch the Group
    Policy snap-in (run "gpedit.msc"). In the left hand pane
    under Local Computer Policy, expand Computer
    Configuration, then Administrative Templates, then
    Windows Components. in the right-hand pane, click on
    Windows Messenger. Click on "Do not automatically start
    Windows Messenger initially." There's an explaination of
    ouw to set the properties just to left of the policy
    object (or if you open the properties window, there is
    an "Explain" tab. I think you'll be able to understand
    how to configure the setting from there.

    G/L!

    Thanks. I run XP Home and do not have gpedit.msc
    So, I'm afraid I'm no further forward.
