Thread: Help With Msn Messenger

  1. #1
    Its not running in my system tray. its not checked in msconfig. i have checked in the MSN options to NOT load at start up OR to run in the back ground. so there is NO evidence that it is actually running.

    But this damn possessed programs shows me on line and i get pop up messages from people from MSN messenger while im playing games.

    And its NOT supposed to be running. i dont think i can uninstall it because its part of other programs like Outlook. what can i do about this?

    it's not showing in task manager either then?
    msmgs.exe or msnmgr.exe?

    msmgs.exe is all versions up to 6.0 i believe
    6.0 is msnmgr.exe

    usually after i run outlook express, msn 4.7 starts up...
    this causes a conflict and i get signed out of msn6.0, but apparently it&#39;s an easy fix

    running xp?
    if so go to : WINDOWS&#092;INF&#092;SYSOC.INF.
    open it, find the line that stars with "msmsgs=" edit the word "hide" out leave the commas then save the file. now you can go to Add/Remove components click on windows components, scroll down and you should see msn/WINDOWS messenger and be able to remove it.

    This worked for me. I no longer have msn messenger running in my task manager, at least.

    Its blinking blonking annoying I know I had that... did get red of it easily.. tiny little prog.. Kill or shoot the messenger.. something like that it was called...But I would appreciate to know other stuff in xp that can be turned off.. I already killed all the fancy graphics and use classic interface to save memory.
