What has been tried so far:

Messenger version:

Windows version:I’m using Windows Live Messenger 8.1 on Windows 7. Is there a way to stop the program from minimising to the system tray and running in the background when I press Alt + F4 to close it? Older versions of MSN messenger, such as MSN Messenger 5.0, have the option to allow the program to run in the background when closed, however I can’t find this option anywhere in WLM.
