    I am sick and tired of MSN Messenger, mainly for the attached stupid Microsoft-like error.

    Does anyone know how to totally remove MSN Messenger from my Windows XP Pro system.

    I am switching to Trillian for good this time.

    :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:

    1). You should already be using Trillian.

    2). You should check the XP Tweaking Guides on your own site :p.

    3). Or if you're too lazy, just go to 'Run...' and enter:

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

    :)

    the way u r sounding u seem to be wanting to uninstall msn messenger. i haven't tried uninstalling so don't know abt the consequences. but if u really want to unistall, here is the way out.
    go to...

    C:\WINDOWS\inf
    find a file sysoc.inf

    look for the entry
    msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7

    delete the thing "hide" from it to make it look like
    msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7

    save the file and reboot.
    now look for msn messenger in "Add/Remove Programs" and u can unistall it.
