  • Only one small issue with this method, messenger now needs admins to start? and so is not able to be run at boot time automatically?

    Is there a fix for this too?

    After using windows 7 for a couple of weeks im very disappointed, instead of streamlining and optomizing the windows functions, it appears as tho they have been built on with very bloaty, un needed features that for the most part just annoy ppl ive spoken to.  eg: If we want to play a video, we'll start media player and play it, why does media player now run permanently? even when its not required its using 20 mb of ram? why?

  • Hi
    for time being follow the suggessions,
    we will wait for better solutions.

    type MSCONFIG in start menu search bar, hit enter,
    Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up. go to startup tab, check the windows live messenger to signin
    automatically.restart when promted.

    for the remaining i suggest you to perform CLEAN BOOT
    How to perform Clean Boot:


    1. Click Start, type MSCONFIG in the Search Bar and Press Enter to start the System Configuration Utility.

             Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.

     

    2. Click the Services tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click Disable All (if it is not gray).

    3. Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.

    4. Restart the computer and test the issue.

     

    ==> Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled during the troubleshooting, we can enable them later. If there appears System Configuration Utility , check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click OK.


    Does it work?
