Within options for messenger, you can tell it not to start automatically with Windows.

Then in OE options, tell it not to sign you on to messenger.

If you go into the control panel, add/remove programs then windows components there should be an entry in there for you to remove it.

Also if you goto the run command, enter msconfig and goto start up items there is an entry for msnmsgr you can uncheck. You'll need to do a selective start up after this or it will recheck the box for you.

This is assuming you have Winxp.

To remove messenger can't be done from add/remove programs as it will still be integrated in OE and disabling it wont stop it from running either as it will still show up in task manager.

To completely remove it try click here and download the .VBS script and run it.This will get rid of it forever!
