    use xp antispy, but only choose the option for deinstalling the
    messenger, perhaps some other, but of course not all, that can cause
    problems. it will kill that annoying messenger.

    You could set Messenger to manual from within Administrative Tools.
    That is assuming you have 2000/NT or XP.
    But who knows what your OS is, only you can say for sure.

    you can delete the directory of messenger (c:/prog files/messenger/). it's
    no harm to windows, et viola!
    also try to clean up your register while you're busy, every hit with windows
    messenger can be deleted (only 'windows messenger'! not other hits with
    'messenger'!) but just deleting the directory would do.
