Does anyone out there know how I can get rid of windows messenger. I have already tried going to sycom.inf in the inf folder, and altering the "hide" setting, and that didn't work.


Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Thanks, the removal cut and paste worked. Guess I didnt look far enough back in the forum.

go to :

Start > Run

at the run window type in gpedit.msc

once in there.. goto:

Computer Configuration
under this, goto "Administrative Templates"

next, goto: "windows components"
under this, goto "Windows Messenger"

once you are here... you will see two entries for messenger...
right-click each one and then left click on properties....

you will want to choose "disable" for both...and viola!!! no more messenger.!!!!!!

good luck!

ya, whatever you do you dont want to try renaming a file to make sure it doesnt run. you can get garbage responses that way.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
