    Does anyone know how to remove Messenger from Windows XP Professional?

    Any help would be appreciated....

    Any easy way I found to disable it (hotmail starts it, so do other ms apps) just rename the exe file to something it can't find.

    msmsgs.exe -> msmsgs2.exe

    At least it won't start all the time, gets annoying to me. As far as a clean uninstall, ms might have hooked it into the OS, so there is no easy uninstall script setup for it

    Re: a quick fix for that

    Hi Matty Cross,

    Here is a method that I would suggest :

    a) insert Linux iso CD
    b) restart system, stopping in BIOS to ensure that the 1st bootable device is the CD-ROM
    c) follow instructions, reading available help files where needed
    d) reboot

    MSN messanger successfully removed! yeah


    Just kidding, hope you figure it out.
    Know this..., you may not by thyself in pride claim the Mantle of Wizardry; that way lies only Bogosity without End.

    Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until Hackers respect thy Power, and other Wizards hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.
