    Is there an easy way to stop msn from working and from it being downloaded once its been uninstalled.

    Hope you can help.

    Many thanks in advance.

    You can go into Add and remove windows components and remove windows mesenger from there. To stop it from being downloaded you have to remove users Admin rights.

    Also, incase you have any security software like MCAFEE, you can go to the admnistrative settings and block the application to access the internet. But as stumped mentioned, i think using the Add and Remove program will be more effective.

    StumpedTechy mentiones Windows Messenger, but you said MSN Messenger. These are two completely different programs. Can you clarify which program you are having a question about?
