    I'd recommend you just format your hard drive.

    Best wishes to all for a safe and joyous, mind-numbing, all-organic
    low-carbon-footprint, toxic-emissions-safe, energy-conserving,
    low-interest-rate, (or special-introductory-rate,) hypo-allergenic,
    devoutly-religious, and/or pagan-ritual holiday shopping season!

    MSN messenger can be removed via add or remove programs under Add/Remove
    Windows Components.
    But only after you modify the sysoc.inf file.
    Open it up in a text editor, and replace Hide with nothing. (leave the
    Replace With field blank)

  7. The IM isn't listed in the add/remove list.
    And I don't know how to do the couple of things that were recommended like
    formating my hard drive, for instance.

    Which IM are you trying to remove?

  9. Please don't say what IM program you mean. I'm sure that's a
    highly-guarded national secret.
