Messenger shows that I'm logged into two different places. Both are from this computer. My Plantronics 780 headphones drivers have disappeared. It was there last night...

What do you mean your headphones "disappeared"? Being logged into two different places could just mean that you got signed out and signed back(do you have a dynamic ip address?).

No Dynamic IP.
I only have one account on this computer.
The headphone drivers just disappeared. I use to have an Icon in my control panel and my task bar for my headphones they are no longer there.

If you have Hotmail opened in the browser, that counts as a second sign-in.

It can show account login from multiple places for same machine, if you are logged in from different apps from the same machine. Like maybe browser.
I suspect windows itself updated driver for the headphones ? You can check the windows update history for that.
when were they last working for you ? Did you use any tools that might have removed the drivers from windows by accident.

You probably have the desktop Messenger open while also signed into the "Messaging" metro app.

Ou might be logged in with both the live messenger and the modern ui app, and did you check that your plantronics didn't simply die?

No my Plantronics didn't die.

I did a refresh and let me just say it removed 90% of my programs. Everything is working as it should, but the refresh is a little extreme. Like I mentioned in another thread. I'm getting a new HDD tomorrow and I'm going to do a clean install.

Never had an issue with Win7. BTW I wasn't logged into Hotmail or use the Messenger App.

I did the refresh. I don't have messenger install and I uninstalled the Metro Messenger APP.

Now I signed in under the Game App into my XBOX Live account and this is my Game For Windows Gamertag as well.

However when I play Solitaire I'm logged into another account. This what Windows 8 assigned to me as stupid a** gamertag.
