    I can't get rid of the flippin' thing. It isn't in my software list and runs whenever I run OE.

    I'm running XP home SP1.

    Can anyone help?

    To stop it from opening when you open OE
    Start Outlook Express
    Click Tools, Options.
    Go to the General tab.
    Make sure “Automatically log on to Windows Messenger” is not selected.

    To remove it altogether
    Click Start | Run and enter the following command:
    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
