I learned that the way to do it is to first edit the file C:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf. Open it with notepad, click edit, replace...type "hide" (without quotes), click replace and then save the change. Windows Messenger will now show up in Add/Remove Windows components.

the best way

the simple way to do it is in the run box type
"RunDll32 advpack.dll,launchINFSection%windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.remove"
this will remove windows messenger.
Don't forget to take out the "quote marks"
