    I would like to remove .NET Messenger from my computer because it logs me in and I am unaware of this (I only know it does because when I log into Windows Live Messenger it tells me I've signed out of .NET Messenger), is there any way I can delete .NET messenger (as I never use it but have had no luck finding it in the Add/Remove Programs link)?

    I don't think you need to try to remove it --just disable it.
    There are several methods >>> http://www.google.com/search?source...GGLD:2004-05,GGLD:en&q=removing+net+messenger
    This one looks simple and reversable. >>
    "The default location for Windows Messenger is C:\Program Files\Messenger. When XP wants to fire up Messenger it will try and access the files at the default location. To prevent Messenger from loading, just rename the Messenger folder to something new; MessengerDisabled has worked for me. If you want to use Messenger at some point down the road, simply rename the folder to Messenger and you're back in business."
    Read and choose a method. :) >f
