    I am now using Trillian, so how can I remove Messenger !
    (No Dodgy Stuff) What is the easiest way which cleans it all out without leaving a trace ?

    Start -> Run

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

    before you do that, make sure Messenger and all progs. that use it (outlook express, MSN messenger) are closed completly (check with ctrl+alt+del) or else it won't work and might cause problems. Also, you made need to run this again if you update certain things on your system.

    Or you can just hide it on the system. Go to the messenger folder & change its name to sometning else maybe 'MessengerOff'. That stops it popping up whenever you open outlook.
