I have both versions on my pc and when i sign it they conflict with each other and keep signing me out saying "you have been signed out of messenger cos u are signed in at a different location" Is there any way round this problem as I understand windows messenger cannot be deletd and I prefer to use MSN version?

Thanks

If you just using these programs for chat purposes why not switch to Trillium?

It will work with the vast majority of chat programs such as ICQ, AOL etc and is very easy to configure.

Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs, Add / Remove Windows Components, Uncheck Windows Messenger, Click OK.

Should remove Windows Messenger and not MSN Messenger. Also should stop the message...

Thanks for info. Have tried to uninstall windows messenger but it not in my add/remove box. I was told that it is part of windows and cannot be deleted. Is this correct?

Read my posting above again.

Open Add / remove programs then on the left there are 4 buttons, the third one should be Add / Remove Windows Components. Click this and then Uncheck Windows Messenger from the list...

What version of Windows are you using? Are you logged in as an Administrator?

Yes, I had exactly the same problem. Someone, I forget who, posted this, and it works!. It will delete Windows Messenger, and leave MSN messenger.

Click start, select run, and type in

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

click OK
