    I goofed. I downloaded MSN Messinger. I had Windows Messinger for xp installed. I like Windows Messinger better. I cannot delete the MSN Messinger program. When I go to open Windows Messinger it takes me to the MSN home page. This is not good. How do I get rid of MSN Messinger? Running windows xp home. Thank You.

    If you go to Start > Control Panel and double click Add / Remove programs, MSN Messenger is not there?

    Went to add and delete programs. Said MSN Messinger is being used by some other programs and cannot be deleted. I tried downloading Windows Messinger and it still will not work. It just opens window explorer. Help file said you can run both messingers but only 1 at a time. That would be fine but win mess. won't let me hook up. :confused:

    First hit Ctrl, Alt, Del and end task on msnmsg.
    Then try to uninstall it.

    Mmmm. That link is not what you think it is Del:confused:
    Biv., I would suggest a restore to before you did the download. The install should have created a restore point. Have you tried that?
