MSN not Windows Messenger

  woodpecker 22:39 04 Aug 2004

Hi I want to set MSN messenger not Windows Messenger in my 'set access programs and defaults' only one slight problem in none of the 3 (Microsoft Windows, Non Microsoft, Custom) tabs does it allow me to choose MSN Messenger even though I d/l'd it and installed it using all the defaults. Still in custom the only option is Windows Messenger which I hate. How can I get the thing to recognise MSN as an option in custom so that it makes it the default.

Many Thanks!

Or remove it by Start/Run and copy/paste this...

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

and Windows Messenger is gone.

Many thanks, will this stop MSN Messenger from working at all do you know?
