    Okay who ever made the program Grimbo doesn't know how to make a user friendly GUI. I downloaded it and it royaly fu*ed up windows messenger. I did a search in the forum to find out how to remove it so that I could re-install it- but after I opened (windows>inf>sysoc.inf) and deleted hide on the column msmsgs and saved it, then I un-installed it and then downloaded it from microsofts site. After it was done installing it saved everything that Grimbo program did to msn messenger. Even though this program has been the biggest pain I have had in XP I do want it.

    Is there any way to undo those changes Grimbo made?!?

    If you have never heard of this program and/or would like to help me with my problem here is the link to this program.

    Use system restore to restore to a point before you installed that program. before i install stuff i always create a restore point, so if it screws up or whatever I can restore back. Works like a charm. If you have system restore on, it creates auto-restore points everytime you reboot or once every day or so (forget which).. so you should be fine to roll-back to a working version.

    I tried exactly what you said and restored my computer back to day 1 which was not more than 2 weeks ago- It never solved the problem- I think the only way to solve this problem is to actually load up Grimbo and undo the changes but I'm not sure how to because that program isn't exactly easy to figure out.

    SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!
