I'm having no problems, all is well, but I have this hijack log, and I figured I might as well let you all have a gander at it.

You might notice I appear to have a missing copy of MS Messenger, that is completely intentional: I noticed a few years ago that Messenger began opening up everytime I opened Outlook, or hit Hotmail's website. That version had no way to stop that behavior, but the next release had the ability to tell it to Never Run. However, I noticed that, even with it set to Never Run, it STILL opened (then closed immediately, like a sneakly little thief trying hard not to be caught) it everytime I opened Outlook Express, or hit Hotmail's website. Annoyed, I renamed msmsgs.exe, and that stopped it from ever opening. (And cause no problems whatsoever, 2 years or more and Outlook and Hotmail both work just FINE without Messenger mucking about with them).

I guess I just don't trust Microsoft, or anyone for that matter, and it really seems suspicious to me that Messenger should insist on running at ANY time when you specifically set it to NEVER run. Sorry for my little rant, just can't resist the urge to grind my teeth at MS sometimes. ;)

Thanks to any who have a look at my log! :)

from what i see everything looks fine. Oh and here is a tip you can turn off msn messenger so that it doesnt start up anymore by booting into safe mode(esc+F8 while rebooting) then goto the dir C:/program files/messenger and rename the application msmsg to msmsgoff. If it says that this file is being used by another program then open up the task manager and scroll down to msmsg.exe and end process now you should be able to rename it. I am sorry if i told you some stuff that you already know i didnt look at you techie info or read all of your post.


Yup, I renamed it over 2 years ago. Had to rename it again when I installed SP2, as well. Thanks, though, for that bit of advice. Maybe it'll help someone else who is, like me, easily irked by software that doesn't do what you tell it too. ;)
