Microsoft Messenger

Can anyone tell me how I can disable Messenger. I do not want to use this feature but can not figure out how to disable it. It is very annoying when my firewall is constantly advising me that this programme is trying to access the internet, usually every couple of minutes.

try msconfig and disable i in start up? or else there is a site run by steve gibson where you can download a program called 'shoot the messenger' sorry cant remember site addy but google should find it for you.

Start, Run, type or paste in

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

and click OK.

If you meant Messenger Service click here

Shoot the messenger is here:

click here

However, I suggest you follow the advice from VoG™; it works fine. I was glad to get rid of Windows Messenger; (not to be confused with MSN Messenger).
