messenger two users? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Im giving my computer to my son.  This computer I was register'd with msn live, Im trying to set him up on an acct. Thought I was successful until I realized I cannot get rid of my contacts on windows live messenger. or rather it displays my Name on the Header and not his when we are sign'd in under him. Its like Im still the acct holder and he is a sub acct. How do I get rid of me (my acct) so this can just be his??

    You're off topic for this forum, which is dedicated to Windows Live OneCare.

    If you mean that you want to stop Windows Live Messenger from signing in with your LiveID, open Messenger, sign out, then click to sign in, but select the option "Forget me" from the signin screen. Provide his LiveID and sign in, selecting to sign in automatically, if desired.
