probably there is an entry in the regedit which you have to delete?

Go to User Accounts in the Windows XP Control Panel (Start, Control Panel).
On the Advanced tab, click Manage Passwords.
In Stored User Names and Passwords, select Passport.Net\*, and click Remove.
This does not delete your Passport, but removes its connection with your computer.
Click Close, and then click OK in the dialog box.
If you click Sign me in automatically in the .NET Messenger Service sign-in dialog box, you will reestablish the Passport you use there as the default for that computer.

Please, sorry if i misunderstood what you said but if what you want to do is preventing your MSN account of loging in automatically then why don't you just uncheck the option? I just can think you are using MSN 4.7 and you don't have this option right? If so just upgrade to MSN 5.0 and you'll have the option to disable the automatic log in under "Tools/Options".
Upgrading is just an option i'm giving you but there could be others as the ones the guys said above, good luck,

1) In this page in post #4 you say: " i dont use MSN messenger so i dont really know that much...", so here you think Yousefj32uk has MSN messenger.
2) Then in post #7 you say: "i think he means MSN windows messenger..." so here you think Yousefj32uk has Windows Messenger. Please decide yourself, haha!!!
3) In post #7 again you tell me: "i dont think theres such an option ..in the log in screen :-\", but i never wrote about the log in screen, why you tell me that? I talked about "Tool/Options"... i don't understand your comment
Sorry but, are you sure you are looking for this option under Tools/Options? I DON'T mean in the log in screen. Open MSN Messenger 5.0, go to Tools then Options and there you will have an option that say something like "allow automatic sign in when connecting to Internet" so just uncheck that. There shouldn't be any problems with this. If not,you can try unchecking the option that say something like "launch Messenger when starting Windows", at least MSN won't start with Windows and your brothers won't login automatically. Are they small kids?, but the first option should work.
Good luck again,
