problem with windows and MSN messenger.

  ShorN 02:12 08 Nov 2003

ive always used what I thought was msn messenger, however after downloading the new msn msg 6.1 I realised I have Windows messenger and msn messenger, which i gather are not the same, hence the obvious simalarity.

The problem I got is the every time I start up connection to the internet, WM starts up as well, How can i stop it starting up automatically? ive gone through the options and It still starts all the time, I have also tried removing it under choose windows components, but it s come back!

any ideas?

To remove Windows Messenger copy this:

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

Now go to Start, run and paste the above.

Click ok.

Restart and Windows Messenger will be gone but MSN will remain :-)
