    I just wanna know why after unintalling everything related to msn messenger and doing the disk cleanup if you reinstall the msn messenger its still having in memory the adress and passwords ? Since you deleted everything, cleaned the cookies, temporary , etc it should not be kept in memory.


    Thank you for the answer.

    I believe the info is saved in the registry and there maybe a password file if you have Windows saving your passwords.

    Look in this key and check sub keys; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL\

    Disclaimer: Edit your registry at your own risk!:)
