Anyone know of IM Software that is discrete?

eg does not open everything windows starts
does not auto login
something that can be started when required then closed down when finished,without leave any or much trace of it being on.

Family uses messenger live, if I add to that the name displays as a login option I don't want that.

Any suggestions?

Pidgin or Pidgin Portable?

The latter would be excellent-just plug in your flash drive and set pidgin to run as soon as you plug it in using autorun.inf.

No traces:)

Most IM programs give you the option to run it on startup / an autologin option. Disable them. Try looking under the options in whatever program

Miranda IM is a really light-weight (4 MB), portable, multi-protocol IM app for Windows. The Miranda IM standard download (http://www.miranda-im.org/download/) is an install but you can grab the portable version here (http://code.google.com/p/miranda/downloads/list). It's been a while since I've used it though so am unsure if it fits the bill.
