  [DELETED] 21:36 20 Dec 2003

I have Messenger 6.1 installed and keep getting signed into .NET messenger on start up and then Messenger 6.1 sign in box comes up.
Which should I use?
Is it possible to get rid of .NET messenger?

Its up 2 u which one you use, the new MSN Messenger is updated and includes more features which I think are preferable to .Net Messenger.

I had the same problem when I first got my new laptop, it is possible to get rid off .Net messenger, follow the instructions below and it should get rid of it!

Go to, Start, Run and type or paste in

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

and click OK.

Windows messenger should now be gone!
