How to remove MS Messenger?

Recommended Posts


What I did is:

• delete registry entry in HKLM\Software\MS\Windows\CurVer\Run

• kill process

• rename msmsgs.exe to sth else

It works. ;)

Try one of the following:

REGEDIT4

;Do not allow Messenger to run on the PC
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client]
"PreventRun"=dword:00000001

REGEDIT4

;Do not allow Messenger to run for User
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client]
"PreventRun"=dword:00000001

Use the winnt.sif method, clean and easy and applied during build, so don't need any mods to finished article.

Is method i use and works a charm. That command and a squillion others are mentioned in ref.chm file.

is there anyway to trick WU into thinking that Messenger is installed? I dont want it installed, but i would like windows update to think that it is.
