    I got this from another forum - hope it helps you out:D

    Microsoft don't seem to want you to be able to remove crap like Windows Messenger. It's installed by default, and it doesn't appear in the Add/Remove in the controlpanel.

    You can force the issue by editing the SYSOC.INF file, located in C:\Windows [or your Windows Directory]\inf folder. Open it in Notepad.

    Under the [Components] heading, there are parameters for various Windows applets. Some off them contain the word "Hide". Those particular programs, which include Windows Messenger (msmsgs), Terminal Server, PinBall, and others, are installed on your XP system, but their intries are hidden from Add/Remove Dialog.

    To remove Windows Messenger, edit Hide out of the line that reads:


    So that it looks like this:


    Save the file, close it and open Add/Remove Program. Click on Windows Components button and you'll see Windows Messenger listed. Uncheck it and click Next to remove it from your system.
    Where were you when we were getting high?
