Hotmail Messenger Fix is a small handy utility that lets you turn Messenger’s auto-launch feature off and prevent it from running every time you log in to Hotmail.
The auto-launch feature makes the popular IM client load automatically every time you log in to your Hotmail account, even if you’re not signed in to Messenger. This feature may come handy for some, but most of the time it’s quite annoying: you have to wait until Messenger loads up before you can do anything else with your computer.
With Hotmail Messenger Fix the problem is over: simply click the button on the app’s interface to turn the feature on or off. Hotmail Messenger Fix doesn’t interfere with Messenger’s standard functionality and you can still manually log in and out whenever you want.
With Hotmail Messenger Fix you can prevent Messenger from launching every time you log in to your Hotmail account.
