msn and update

#1
A warning and a request for help. The update window came up and it reinstalled msn messenger. The sysoc.inf didnt change with the "hide" still removed but it is no loner in the ADD AND REMOVE PROGRAMS/WINDOWS COMPONENTS. If any one can help me to redelete this program it would be Thankfull.

I think you should take this as a warning that you really shouldn't try to delete messenger. Just disable it and forget about it. If you delete it again then windows update will see that you do not have a critical update installed and replace it every time you delete it. It doesn't take up that much disk space to go to that much trouble.

Just remember that you can choose not to install all updates.

I found where i went wrong with the auto updates. When the bubble window opens and you click on it you can hit the detail button and uncheck any messenger updates. Thank You again for your help. how i found this out is i deleted it again and it gave me another update notice for the same thing.
