I really hate it, and it opens up when I access Outlooks.
I just want it off my computer! Any ideas?
This one is for Windows XP.With the other Windows I think it can be unistalled like any other program.
This works every time:
1. Goto C:\Program Files in My Computer, Windows Explorer, Command Prompt, what have you
2. There should be two folders containing the word "Messenger" in them in some form. Rename those two to something else, like "I hate messenger" for one and "Messenger is the devil" for the other. Windows will not be able to locate the folder and thus will not be able to run Messenger.
If you have trouble finding the folders just do a search for "msmsgs" in your Program Files folder. About 3 files should show up.
SCORE! Thanks man!
Start - Run - type "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove"
w/o the quotes and it's case sensitive.
Thanks for the tip. I too have wanted to remove messenger from my computer. Tried it and worked great.
Back up registry then go to registry....HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.....Delete key MSMSGS
