    Go to Start - Run then paste this in:

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    This should work... just reboot afterwards. Good luck. :D

    I don't think that works... I remember trying that before, and messenger 4.7 still popped up from time to time when I had messenger 5.
    Annoying little piece of code that messenger 4.7. Could chat without having it turned on. :mad:

    soutpark: Its microsoft, and loves not lov.

    Anyways, they didnt create an updater to update that 4.7 to the latest? Because i never had the trouble of it running 2 times, only when i used outlook did i get it popping up eventhough i had uninstalled it.

    Yes 'frothymilkshake,' just do the following in START>RUN (to remove messenger 4.7)

    Code:
    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    I went out and tried it. It at least deletes all the registry entries and files. Since I dont use Windows Messenger though, I can't tell a difference. I disabled it a long time ago ;)
