Is there any way to completely remove messenger from my system? I am running XP Home and I have OE6Thanks
Just go to c:\program files and rename the messenger folder.... I've renamed mine messenger1 for example. Once you've done this, messenger will never pop-up and annoy you again.
Hi Chris have tried to rename but not able to despite having removed the "Read Only" tick
I have also made sure the programme is not open
Do you actually mean MSN messenger or Windows Messenger?
is it windows messenger or msn messenger ? they nearly same but xp has windows messenger built in i think dont know a lot about xp can you not remove through add/remove.
I managed to rename the folder eventually, rebooted and it seems to not be starting up now -Thanks for that!VoG: It was Windows Messenger - I had assumed it was the same thing?
Go to click here and type messenger in the box and click the search button. Lots to choose from, this is an exampleclick here
ooops slow again lol glad it sorted tho Regards
A NICKNAME: No, you can't remove it from within Add/Remove Programmes in XP. However, renaming the folder seems to have done the trick.
