    One of my customer requested me to block the msn messenger on her computer
    which is on a network with another computer. The network is using a Dlink
    router which has firewall capabilites. I tried to block the port 80; it
    blocks the internet connection, but not the msn messenger. How can I block
    the msn messenger. Any ideas?

    The easiest way is to disable Messenger through Services. You can also try
    going to Program Files/Messenger and renaming the file to something else.
    Messenger looks to this file at startup and will abort if it cannot find the
    file.

    1 out of 3 people actually answered this question right, as always well done
    RussS. As for the other two this is about MSN Messenger NOT the Windows
    Messenger service they are not the same thing.

    I must start reading the original question everytime I log on. I had
    already read it earlier, so I skipped it and read the last reply. My bad.
