Removing MSN Messenger from my computer

Does anyone know how to remove this from the computer. We allowed a house guest to register and now we can't get rid of it.

Start, Run, paste in

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

and click OK.

Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and click the MSN Messenger entry and choose Remove.

If you have WinXP, start/control panel/add or remove progs./add remove windows components and untick windows messenger.

That's for Windows Messenger, VoG™. :)

I misread the question, I hang my head in shame.

Worked for me.

I give up.

MSN Messenger can be removed with Control Panel-Add/remove programs.

Windows messenger, which looks similar, is a little more tricky but can be removed as above.
