ages ago I downloaded a little program that removes messenger from the system in a couple of seconds flat. If you want it send me your email and I will forward it to you as I can't remember where I got it from, I think it was Computer Active.

You're referring to Windows Messenger 4.7 or 5.1, not quite the same thing as MSN Messenger/Live Messenger. click here

Leo;
"i have removing it from add and remove but when i instal it again"
Your problem is not being unable to remove Messenger properly (I assume you mean you removed it /with/ Add/Remove Programs), the issue is with the connection. Check MTU size, firewall settings, anti-virus Instant Messenger monitoring for a start. Do you get an error number? Are you running Vista, it has a TCP auto-tuning feature that can sometimes prevent messenger working.

Try meebo click here and see if the connection problems persist.
