You may want to take a look @ "OPPCOM ME" ?? http://www.beta10.com/oppcomme.htm OppCom Version 2.1 Build Date 07/07/2003 Freeware Snip from www.beta10.com website: Windows optional component maker "oppcom" for Windows ME, returns control of your computer Back To You, the person that paid for it. By adding scripts to windows that put back in the ability to remove the programs that come built into Windows ME. Oppcom does not remove these components. It gives you the power to remove them, or put them back, it lets YOU decide what you want running on YOUR computer. I've used it myself, and find it to be XCLNT. Worth a try.
