How to disable Messenger Auto-sign-in via Outlook.com

I must say I am a big fan of Microsoft’s new web front-end for Hotmail – Outlook.com. The UI is very modern, minimalist and fast!

About the only complaint is that any time you browse to outlook.com via a web browser, it will automatically sign you into MS Messenger.  Though initially this may not be a problem, I find that you can rapidly reach ridiculous numbers of logons even though you may only consciously be using say one browser at home and another at work.  It got so bad that I was even prevented from signing into the desktop Messenger app in Windows Live Essentials.  If only there is a way to prevent automatic login.

Luckily there is.  Jonathan Kay has come up with a rather simple way to block auto sign-in which you can read on his blog.
