If you have XP with Service Pack 1 go down the page and use method 2. You can't remove messenger but you can disable it. If you run Outlook Express you will also have to rename the Messenger folder as described in Method 3.

I disabled the little green blighter yesterday.

Have you gone into MSN Messenger/Tools/Options/General/Uncheck tab - automatically start messenger when I log on to windows & uncheck auto sign in...

Go to Control Panel/AddorRemoveProgrammes/AddorRemoveWindowsComponents. Look for Messenger, untick the box and click Next.
