    Does anyone out there know how I can get rid of windows messenger. I have already tried going to sycom.inf in the inf folder, and altering the "hide" setting, and that didn't work.


    Thanks in advance for any help provided.

    go to :

    Start > Run

    at the run window type in gpedit.msc

    once in there.. goto:

    Computer Configuration
    under this, goto "Administrative Templates"

    next, goto: "windows components"
    under this, goto "Windows Messenger"

    once you are here... you will see two entries for messenger...
    right-click each one and then left click on properties....

    you will want to choose "disable" for both...and viola!!! no more messenger.!!!!!!

    good luck!

    ya, whatever you do you dont want to try renaming a file to make sure it doesnt run. you can get garbage responses that way.
