Can someone help me to get the msn messenger icon out of my taskbar. I cna't figure this out, and I don't want to completely get rid of the program. I upgraged recently from xp home to pro and I used to be able to click 'exit' and have it go away unless I had outlook express running. Now it won't let me exit it when I have internet explorer running. I'm not sure how it became dependant on ie, but I don't use it and can't find an option to de-associate it with ie. Thanks for the help.
