If you are comfortable editing the registry, you can do this, after you create a restore point, of course...
If you're one of those people who don't use, don't like, and don't want Windows Messenger. Here's how you can get rid of it completely.
Click Start, Run and enter the following command:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
Note: This will prevent a long delay when opening Outlook Express if you have the Contacts pane enabled. To prevent this, click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:
Right click in the right pane and select New, Dword value. Give it the name Hide Messenger Double click this new entry and set the value to 2.
