Default automatic messenger login fix

Many Hotmail users have been migrated to the new or relatively new Outlook Mail and have found that the messenger automatically logs and if this can be a hassle.
So to resolve that, I've created a very simple script that stops messenger from loging in
This is the script:

@echo off

color 02
echo local host >> %WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

You only need to copy its content, paste onto notepad and save it as "anything you want.bat" without quotes. No matter how you name it. Is important is ends in .bat
If you can't see extensions you just need to activate it in folder options:

Windows explorer (any window) press ALT key > Tools > Folder Options > Hide extensions...
and uncheck it.

For those who don't want to make all above steps, here's the final script:

In any case, make sure your RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR .

The script simple adds an entry to host file. instant messasing and send any request to this adress to a non response (and local ) ip:
You call destiny to the future you can't control.
