I want to get rid of MS Messenger. I have tried removing it from Add/Remove windows components in Control Panel. It gives the impression it has got rid of it but I can see in ZoneAlarm it is still listening to port TCP 9024. It is also still listed in Program Files folder. Is there any way of completly removing it?

tell zonealarm to block it and delet its files in programs files

those r just files it did not remove

(PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE IT IF IT STILL DISPLAYS IT IN THE START UP BAR USE ABLE)

Thanks VoG. Your advice did the trick. Gone forever. Why can't MS make it that easy?? A cynical person may think they don't want people to uninstall it!!!
