Windows Messenger Question

Is it actually safe to uninstall Windows Messenger? I heard that it's somehow tied to the OS and that if it is uninstalled, it will ruin other components in windows.

Anyone know?

Hello YellowSmileY,

it´s very safe to uninstall the messenger after following steps:

Make a backup copy of your sysoc.inf file from your windows directory
Rename it e.g. sysoc.old
Navigate to C:windows\inf Open sysoc.inf find
msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7 in the file
and take out the word hide so the line would look like
msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7.
Close the file and save it.
Now go to the Add and remove programs applet in the control panel
and you will be able to uninstall windows messenger.
Make sure to click on the add remove windows components button.

Totally safe

Yes if u have selected "do not remove system files on uninstall" (selected by default) it will not remove anything which is critical for the coputer.

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
