I seem to have 2 versions of the above on my pc vers. 4.6 and version 5 I cant get rid of the former. There is nothing in add remove prog and if I search for 4.6 the results come back with nothing. Any help much appreciated

I suspect that you've got Windows Messenger 4.6 and MSN Mesenger 5.0 (they are different programs). To renove Windows Messenger

Start, Run and in the box type or copy/paste the following command

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

Click OK.

VoG...I have v 4.7 of messenger. Will the aforementioned run command take that one off, please?

I think so - you can but try.

Thanking you for that VoG and forgive me for my ignorance!

You can prevent the program from running by using gpedit.msc. There's an article on the MS KB.
