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.

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 !

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
