    Uninstalled MSN but many files left.
    Now on Comcast cable, so messenger 6.1 was installed.

    Problem: When I start Messenger, a message says unable to connect to the interent, but our connection works fine. However, the old MSN email address appears in the messenger window. It seems to be overriding the new internet connection.

    Which MSN files can I identify to safely remove--there are tons in a folder called 1386. ???

    How can I get messenger to work with cable not that the MSN account is closed?
