    does anybody know how to get microsoft messanger not to start every time I run office. Ever since I installed this patch the damn programs opens everytime I run explorer or half the office programs and can't be shut down until I close them. Its rather annoying, as I don't use it

    Thanks

    Another way to get rid of Messenger without uninstalling and reg hacks

    I just figured out how to remove M$ Messenger and keep it from loading on startup and on launch of Outlook AND this does not slow down Outlook or hinder system performance. The policy editor and registry tweaks ain't got nothin' on this! Just go into "C:\Program Files\Messenger" and either rename the Messenger folder to something like "MessengerOLD" or just move it. Viola! Even if you enable MSMSGS in Msconfig IT WILL NOT LOAD! So easy even a stoned lab rat can understand.

    You can remove Windows Messenger by going to start button, run and then paste:
    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
    Press enter and restart windows after it removes the messenger.
