Don't want Messenger to always load using OE



I have recently installed WindowsXP Pro.
Am using Outlook Express.
I have unchecked the box in Messenger Preferences
so it won't run on Windwos startup.
I have also Unchecked the Box in Outloo Express Options
so it won't automatically log on to windows messenger.

HOWEVER, Messenger always loads when I open
Outlook Express.
How do I prevent this program from running?
I don't have any use for it.
Thank you.

Greetings Andrea,

To stop this behavior, close Outlook Express, then download and run the following .reg file:

After this, Messenger will no longer load with OE. Ever.
