MSN Messenger keeps telling me that I need to close stuff whenever I am trying to get rid of the icon down in the tray over by my clock...

I attached the message I get to this post...

I have nothing open when I am trying to do this... Why is it telling me this?

Try closing all the applications and then restarting your computer.
I think this will do :)

Thats crap, I had the same prob. I had nothing open that needed msn. So I just endtask msnmsgr.exe and that fixes the prob.

I dont know if this will work. Try uninstalling MSN Messenger and then re-install it.
After this, restart your PC.

I didn't even want it on my computer lol... I don't know why I put it back on. I got rid of it last year because it was doing stupid stuff like this before. I think I'll just get rid of it...

I will do the task manager thing...

Thanks for your help ~bk and Admiral Michael!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
