    I went to Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs to try to remove wlloginproxy.exe, but instead of “Windows Live Login Assistant”, I found “Windows Live Sign-in Assistant”. Is that the same thing? I’m running Windows XP, SP2. Thanks

    Thank you very much. This worked like a charm.

    I do wish Microsoft would just stick to operating systems and programs. Some of their stuff really messes up a system. Thanks again for the help on removing Windows Live logon.
