How to turn off Windows Live Messenger pop-up window

Good morning (it is a dull morning in London)!

The Windows Live Messenger window (inviting me to sign in) pops up automatically when I start my new Windows 7-run (Dell) computer. I never asked it to, and I don't want it to - it annoys me! - but I cannot a way to turn it off.

 

Could you please tell me how to turn it off. 

 

Thanking you in advance,

Conor Joyce
