    I get messages from people I don't know so I am trying to pemanelty disable this program. I thought I would have found it in the control panel - add/remove programs but it is not listed there.

    Go to Start > Run

    Then copy and paste this line:

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%INFmsmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    Here is where it is:

    Control Panel -> add/remove programs -> windows components
    Then look for messanger and take it off... also you can take off MSN while your at it.. [​IMG]
