I have an icon in my system tray that looks like a pawn from my chess board. It annoyingly keeps telling me that 'Messenger Updates Are Available'. I do not and do not ever want to use Messenger. Is there a way to get rid of it.
N.B I have stopped pop-up's in Admin / Tools but this does not get rid of Messenger.
