On windows XP, Under my account when I turn on the PC it says For example: ' 5 new messages ' (Hotmail) . And thats fine...

...but, it also says that under my Mums account. It says my new messages under her account as well. :eek: I setted up MSN meesenger on her account as well and It needed a Hotmail address, My mum doesnt hav one so i typed in mine.
I guess ur wondering y she needs MSN messenger on her account...well, its becoz when I go on her account I will sometimes need to use MSN messenger as well. :D

cant u just set up MSN Messenger without entering a Hotmail address and associating it with ur Windows?

Does any1 no how 2 get rid of this message?. Thnx :o
