    ...I installed it so I could see my Grandson on my daughter's web-cam, and I did it under duress.

    It sucks large donkey balls and I want it gone.

    HELP!!!

    it has no uninstaller?

    try control panel > add/remove programs > add/remove windows components

    or this:

    Why not just disable it from starting up ? That way it won't bother you till she sends a new pic or video . Its in MSN options .

    Well, I did that, thanks, peat.

    I have flashbacks from older versions that wouldn't allow you even that control...it still seems that it slows the PC a bit even when it's disabled.

    I'll re-assess it and post later.

    Thanks again, fellers.

    Not sure but you might find it in Start>All Programs>Set Program Access and Defaults>Add/Remove Windows Components.

    Actually, dumb me...it is in add/remove; I hadn't even looked owing to prior experience.

    The capabilities of the program are kinda neat, but past incarnations have been resource-hogging, hijacking pains.

    I've disabled it from start-up, and I'll evaluate whether or not it affects my machine.

    I guess it's down to my security-consciousness.

    I hate fucked-up PCs.

    The only reason I did it to begin with was I wanted to see the kid, and my daughter didn't have the proper cabling to connect her vid-cam to her PC.

    We've corrected that problem.
