Apart from password protecting the computer this cannot be done. If you have XP you can set administrator rights.

MSN is difficult to uninstall esp. if you are using XP.

If you go to Start/Run and type RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

MSN is uninstalled from your system.

Does not stop it getting reinstaled by anyone with access to your computer though.

Perhaps there is a firewall package that you could deny MSN access to the internet? You could do it with zone alarm but I guess you would want to be able to set up access rights to the firewall so no-one can change the settings.

Just to can be deleted but putting it back on can be easy unless you are using XP and set admin rights.

You can block chat programs accessing the internet from the parental control section. Or bock programs name by name in the firewall section.
