How can I stop Windows Live Messenger open at startup?

Windows Live Messenger opens whenever I start my laptop, and it does not to her PIN on the bar of.
Short of uninstalling this program (if that is even possible), how can I stop to open at startup and it detach all the time in the taskbar?  Thanks for your help.

Hello

I can help you to stop Live Messenger from running at startup but don't know why it won't let you it detach from the task bar. It should leave you with the right button and choose "unpin this program from the taskbar".
On the login screen when messenger starts first, click Help on the right with the (?) and in the menu on the button, put a check mark next to "show the menu bar.
OK - now you can access the menus at the top of the window. Go to tools-> Options.
In the window that appears, click "sign in" on the list on the left and uncheck the box to the top right ("automatically run Windows Live Messenger when I log on Windows ')
Next time you reboot, Live Messenger doesn't have to load at startup.
It may be useful to uninstall and download again to see if there is a updated version that works better.
Hope this will help

    I do not use Windows Live Messenger, but he insists on the display of alerts telling me to connect. Why it does this and how can I stop without causing problems in other areas? I know nothing about it except that the people who try to contact me (I guess) can do it without going through channels such as email or telephone.
