Thanks for that, but whenever I exit from msn messenger, a windows messenger icon appears in the taskbar and won't close, i have unchecked the option of windows messenger starting when msn messenger is opened, but windows messenger doesn't seem to want to go away, i have also uninstalled it throgh tweak xp pro 2, any other ideas, regards, Rhuddlan.

If you go here click here and down to Win XP Utilities there is a removal tool.
