and some more usfull information on uninstalling MSN messenger :O)
(i'm realy geting in to this... i hope my shareing is ok :O)
...

Want to remove MSN Messenger?
A lot of people want to know how to remove the MSN Messenger service from XP... here's how:
Locate SYSOC.INF in the \Windows\INF folder (hidden file and folder), Open it in Notepad and locate the line: msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7
Remove the word "hide" from the line and save the file. You will now have an entry in add/remove programs. Do what you will Smiley
OR (XP Pro Only) leave it installed, but tell Windows to never let it run. If you're running XP Professional, you can use GPEDIT.MSC to prevent Messenger from loading. Otherwise, even disabling it in startup won't cause it to "always" not run. NOTE: Outlook, Outlook Express and some Microsoft web pages can still make it load.

Start, Run and enter GPEDIT.MSC
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Messenger
You can now modify whether it starts initially and/or whether it's to run at all.
UPDATE: I have recieved some email that say this fix slows down outlook when starting, that is because outlook wants to start messenger when it starts, the easiest and fastest way to disable messenger and still have a quickj starttime with outlook is to rename the exe file, located here c:\program files\messenger\msmsgs.exe, to something other than msmsgs.exe, such as msmsgsnew.exe.

Hi,

This is great! Thank you for the info!

As for the ads popping up, sounds like ad ware, check out Spyware Remover

Hi,

I have never heard of them. It would appear somehow their software was installed (either a certificate was accepted or some installed shareware installed it) on your system and they can now push ads to you!

Let me know if Ad-Aware or SpyWare removed this for you.

Good luck!
