    You can delete messenger.
    Start-> Run->
    Type -> RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    Make sure you want to do it before you do. It could affect Outlook Express performance.

    Lonman Bleh!

    If you use Outlook Express I wouldn't delete it... it's integrated with OE and slows it's launch time considerably. A good workaround is to rename the executable. Change it from msmsgs.exe to msmsgsoff.exe... this prevents it from launching but has no discernable affect on OE.

    when i try RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove i get * error unregistering the ocx*

    catch 23 --- deffo the messenger cd m8

    also to stop the slow performance of outlook once you remove ,messenger open outlook goto tools >> options >> other ad untick instant messaging in outlook .... gets you right back up to speed

    i had previously removed messenger but the sp put it right back in there and now i cannot re-remove it :)

    Very simple !
    1.First find that hidden files are unchecked
    2. Go to Windows\inf\sysoc.inf

    There are some utilities with HIDE ( after ) . Simply delete that " Hide " and save it . Restart PC and messager will appear on add/remove programs !
