It can be convenient when your Windows Live Messenger Chat opens as soon as you fire up your computer but sometimes it gets annoying when you just want to play solitaire or when other people are using your computer. Even David Hasselhoff had hangovers in the morning and had to tell K.I.T.T. to just shut up and you can heed this advice on preventing Windows Live Messenger Chat from automatically logging on. I love my automatic coffee maker but some days I just donâ€™t want the java. Likewise, I donâ€™t chat online every time I log onto the computer so it would be nice if Windows Live Messenger loaded only when I told it to. This is very possible by first logging off the software. At the login page, youâ€™ll notice a dialog box that infers WLM to â€˜sign me in automaticallyâ€™ and youâ€™ll want to make sure that box is unchecked. There are other options such as â€˜remember meâ€™ and â€˜remember my passwordâ€™ and you should make sure those options arenâ€™t activated as well, especially if youâ€™re working on a shared computer. Toggling these changes will prevent Windows Live Messenger Chat from automatically logging on and if you find out you donâ€™t have the time to sign in each time down the road, just check the boxes back.
