Usually I would just go in and disable the .dll so that Msmsngr would not start up at the system start up thus eliminating the sign ons, but I had no use for keeping it on my computer at all.

The amazing thing is, malicious spyware is easier to remove manually than Windows Messenger is. . .
Well, I meant Outlook 2002 that comes with Office XP Pro, not Express.

And, your right, the spyware was easier to remove.

thanks for all the help. I removed MSN messenger by forcing the program to quit then deleting its folder. Even after ending the program I couldn't delete the folder at first because it would automatically start back up.. I had to delete the folder within 3 seconds of forcing it to quit!

It may still return when you restart your computer. Did you try Phish'* string?

If you didn't, the string may not work now if it returns. If it returns, try Phish'* string. If that doesn't work, let me know. We'll have to used MSDOS to unregister some dll'*, among other things.

It'* a complicated process, so, if at all possible, use Phish'* string, lol.
