Removing Messanger
    #2116601 - 11/17/03 03:05 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

High.
I wanna remove MSN Messanger from my laptop's HDD but I think simply deleting /Program Files/Messanger will still leave registry keys and other files out of the directory. I want to know how to totally remove it. Thanks :smile:

Check under start->control panel->add/remove programs and see if you can remove it from there. Remember, MSN Messanger is not the same as microsoft messanger service... which is yet another security concern.

what you wanna get rid of msn messenger or the messenger service? if you wanna get rid of annoying defualt ads then i assume the service is what you wanna stop?

control panel>administrative tools>services>messenger

right click messenger and goto properties>disable.

doing this can lead to problems when you run a network.
