msn messenger problem

My daughter has downloaded msn messenger 5 beta version which will not work on my computer. Ihave tried removing it using add and remove programs but to no avail. Ihave also tried installing the program from msn but that does not solve the problem
Please help

if its xp,try using system restore.

or boot into safe mode by tapping F8 while the computer starts and then try add remove programs.

if that doesnt work,you will need to remove it manually.

post back if you need info.

but if you feel brave,then the below method should work.

click start, and click run, in the run dialog box copy/paste the below command and hit enter.

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

note/ i have not tried this myself.please dont blame me if its goes wrong.
