The problem is,ms antispyware keeps popping up every minute telling me ,its allowing msmsgs to be installed in my startup.Even though ive disabled msmsgs.Should i disable ms antispyware?

Make sure the version of msmsgs that keeps popping up is genuine - msnmsgr.exe is the correct task name for MSN Messenger.

Yes it is the genuine one.Im really thinking of uninstalling it.As ive already got,adaware,spybot,winpatrol,spyware guard,and spyware blaster.

Personally, I wouldn't uninstall MSAS. It's a good program and the other security progs you have will not aford adequate protection in it's stead.

Your problem is with msmsgs, and that is what you need to address.

The Messenger startup process name has been used to hide nasties, so be sure that the process is definitely Messenger click here

You could also consider removing Messenger altogether

My daughter downloaded what she thought was a messenger update but in fact it was a nasty which caused us a few problems. I like MSAS myself.
