This might help, but I'm not sure

 

Start, Run, 'control userpasswords2' (minus quotes)

 

This gives you the Windows 2000 style Passwords control panel

 

Move to the Advanced TAB. Now, under the Passwords and .NET Passports, click Manage Passwords

 

Remove any user you don't want the computer to remember.

If you run through the .NET Passport Wizard (when you first try to sign in to Messenger), there's an option to Associate your Windows User Account with the Passport you just made/signed into. Try unchecking that.

 

And no, you don't have to get a new passport everytime you run the wizard. :)

Or create another user acct on the computer and configure that one with a diff net passport and do not check the remember me box. Then you should be able to log in with any name and password you wish.

hit start/control/adminstrative tools/services while in services look for secondary logon, when you find it right click hit properties, and disable it restart then you can take out .net as you installed it when you where updating at the windows update site.
