It's easy to keep Windows Instant Messenger from signing in automatically.
How can I keep Windows Instant Messenger from signing on automatically?
My approach would be to turn off the option that starts Windows Instant Messenger when you login . That's at Options, Preferences, Run Windows Messenger when Windows Starts.
Then just run Windows Instant Messenger when you want to, and exit it when you're done.
