    all you need to do is go to add/remove programs, then click on add/remove windows components...windows messenger is down the bottom, just uncheck it and its gone

    that wont work. He wants to remove the old one. Try this type this command:

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