    It maybe a good idea to tell use if ya still want to use the service or if ya don't use it at all first.

    i don't want it ! i don't want any program doing any thing i don't now about and when its trying to get to the internet by itself i don't like that. so i would like to box it up and send it back to mr. gates he will probaly sell it to someone else poor guy needs the money so bad.

    Then the easiest way is to rename the messenger folder to something like messenger.old or whatever ya want. :D

    It should be in C:/program files/messenger unless you've changed the default path. ;)

    have not changed any paths that i no of. just went to search msmsgs.exe found one file deleted file it reloaded at start up. this is probly a stupid question but does msn home page reload mess i do use hotmail but i have never let mess. sign in i sign in by hand each time. or maybe this is part of mr. gates new panhandler program wich i hear is redey for testing.
