Default Re: MSN Question

During installation, msn was added to your start-up menu.
One way to stop it running when booting is to click Start and then click run. In the command box, type “msconfig” without quotes.
The system configuration window opens and you need to click the last tab at the top called startup. Look for the msn entry in the list of startup programmes and uncheck its box. Click the button called “apply” at the bottom of the window. A dialog box then appears asking you to either restart your computer or exit without restart. The choice is yours. When you do reboot another window will appear informing you that changes have been made to the startup menu, just check the box that says do not show again. msn will no longer start when you boot.
