If you want to delete Windows Messenger Start, Run, type in

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

and click OK.

I have recently installed XP with new KV7 motherboard.

When I instaled 6.1 i firstly was prompted to ensure that any previous version was not running. Therefore I simply right clicked the icon in the bottom right of my screen and clicked exit. This should make the icon disappear.

Then installed 6.1 and to the best of my knowledge this is what you do.

I am currently running 6.1 with no problems.

Hope this helps

PS I have also installed a free copy of Grisoft AVG software (click here) and part of the instalation for that includes fixes for 6.1. Not sure what fixes they were but i installed them anyway.

See how you go...!
