3 versions of Messenger - Live Messenger (the most recent click here) etc or MSN Messenger 4.7/5.1 that starts up with XP on some systems?. The Windows Messenger service is not the same thing, and is disabled on systems with SP2 installed. click here

Remove the built-in version of Messenger altogether; click here

Only required if you use Windows Remote Assistance anyway
