I have started using MSN messenger, using windows msg, before. I never have
either of them start up, can you change the default on the task bar (above)
in IE 6 to start msn msg instead of windows messenger?
I don't see it in the customize toolbar, under veiw?
thanks bruce

Greetings Bruce,

Yes you can. To do so, just close all Internet Explorer windows, then download and run the
following .reg file:

You'll need to close and reopen Internet Explorer to see the change. Also to add, you'll
need to the edit the file in notepad and change the drive letter if your MSN Messenger is
not located in C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger.
