Options - Windows Live looks to me that facebook has turned on social updates on your live account

Sign In

Welcome to Windows Live

There's no going back to the old version. Looks like you just got transitioned earlier.

And yeah, go through ALL the options. There's a boat load. In it you'll find various security/privacy settings. Not sure if you can stop messenger from auto-signing in though. Click Messenger up at the top and see.

Live/MS is trying really hard to make it into a cohesive system with single sign-on. Kind of like Google. Only that Live has way more sub-pages and services IMO.
