Every time I try to exit messenger I get a message syaing there are other programs using features provided by messenger - so I cannot exit the program - even if I disable it in msconfig it still comes back.

Any ideas anyone, thanks in advance.

it happens to me too even after i've just booted up and i haven't yet started any application or ie.finally uninstalled windows messenger and installed version 5

would be interested in a solution though

The only way I've overcome it at the moment is by actually renaming the windows messenger file to 'msmgs2' - there must be more of a practical solution?

anyway this should bump you up to the top
