How do I unassociate a windows live account with windows messenger?

by on December 10, 2010

Q: I recently closed my windows live account, but, now windows messenger keeps trying to log into the account (it obviously can’t)… I’ve been going around in circles for a long time, trying to figure out how to unlink that account to windows messenger….

Do you know how? An uninstall would be great, but I don’t think that’s possible…

thanks in advance

    Microsoft has instructions on how to prevent Windows Messenger from running. Follow the instructions on this page for the version that you have installed:

    I don’t want it to necessarily stop running, just unlink that account…
