windows messenger (two head blue icon) or messenger?

to disable windows messenger, go into control panel, add/remove software, windows set up, accessories, uncheck it in there (you have to log on as administrator or as someone with admin rights)

to disable messenger, go to start, run, type services.msc, hit enter, look for messenger, doulble click to bring up properties, click disable.

hope it help

This should work as well.

Goto start then click on run

type msconfig and press enter

Click on the services tab

Scroll down to messenger and un-tick

press ok and reboot your PC as prompted

When windows has reloaded click the tick box on the pop-up and press ok

You will now no longer receive these messages.

Try downloading Trillian, it will function as MSN Messenger, but also with ICQ AIM IRC etc and in my opinion is neater.
