    I've noticed a new feature that has just been shoved in my face by MS. Now, when I log on, I get this popup from Hotmail:

    One method: the 3-finger salute, Ctrl+Alt+Del, or right-click the Taskbar to open Task Manager, check the Startup tab to check if there, right-click the Enable and Disable it.

    Is that Hotmail or the new Steam chat?

    @Sheltieuk Try this. In the chat window that opens, click the cog wheel at the top of the window. Turn Compact friends list & chat view off.

    He must have Steam installed to be getting that.

    Sorry sheltieuk, I thought you were asking the question. My bad.

    It's a Steam Chat Client, he has to have Steam installed. It just started the auto pop up with a Steam update.
