How can I stop Instant Messaging

  numbskull 22:21 24 Feb 2004

I do not want my children to use the pc for instant messaging. I have blocked emailing on AOL, is it possible to stop Instand Messaging so that they cannot use it? This may sound mean but we have had a very nasty experience.

What operating system are you using and are you referring to Microsoft Instant Messaging or AOL or Yahoo or..........?

It's microsoft Instant messaging. I know how to block AOL. By operating system do you mean Windows XP?

Start, Run and type in

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

and click OK.

This will remove Messenger from XP
