    Wrong "messenger" service. The service you describe is for administrative
    alerts, not MSN messenger. Disabling this services does nothing for MSN

  7. Well there isn't really much point, seeing as hard disk space is pretty
    plentiful these days and so is memory.

    But if you really want to remove it, then one way to do so is to rename the
    folder to something else (e.g. from Messenger to Messenger-old). That should
    prevent it from starting up.

    Also download the startup control panel from this page
    ( and in all of the tabs, delete references
    to the messenger or msmsgs so you do not get any of that 'searching for program'
    stuff that Windows usually does when it finds a duff shortcut.

    There is a command you can use to automatically remove it from your system but I
    cannot remember what it is currently. But if you do the above then Messenger
    should not return.
