crys at&t yahoo messenger users, question...

ok i just got at&t dsl last week.
finally, i have the speed of dsl! woohoo!
i still have some configuration to email to do and stuff like that.

anyway my question is,
how do i keep stupid yahoo messenger from starting up when i boot on the computer?
i've tried deselecting the boxes that say to restart it.
even deselected the box that said to remember my ID.
and yet it STILL comes on!
it's driving me crazy cuz i have to wait for yahoo messenger to start up before my msn messenger will start up before the rest of my windows programs will start up.
and i NEVER use yahoo messenger!

i'm fairly new to windows XP so i'm not sure how to go in and take yahoo messenger of the startup menu thingie.

Start > Run
Type this: msconfig
In this window, click the Startup tab
Find the item in the list referring to Yahoo Messenger, uncheck it, click OK
It will ask you to restart, then when it restarts it will tell you that you've made changes, click the box to tell it to stop notifying you

Or, uninstall it in Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
