I would like to remove wondows live messenger from my xp home pc.
I have tried add remove programs. The name of the programs appears on the left side but the file has no size indocated on the right. THere is no option to remove.
I have tried revo uninstaller. There is no listing for windows live messenger in the program list.
I have downloaded the windows installer clean up utility. When I click on the exe, file it installs then nothing happens.
I have tried zapmessenger and it just indicates that it is working but carries on for hours.
How do I get rid of this program and all its constituent parts please

There is no option in add/remove programs to remove the programs. The program appears in the list but no option to remove when highlighted.
Its like the file is gone but the folder name is still there, (if thats possible)
As a consequence of this I cannot re-instal windows live because it is already on the pc according to the message I get when I try to re-download it.

did you try running the Doug Knox script I linked to? That will remove the program.
