I downloaded IM Names from the internet. Now when I go on MSN Messenger then everytime I double click on a contact, it tells them to go to that website. I want to delete this. How? When I go to C:/Program Files/IM Names and if I want to delete the IM Names folder I can't. I get the folowing: (In screen shot)


I want to have everything to do with IM Names off of my computer. How do I do it? Why can't I delete the folder?

IM Names Website: http://www.im-names.com

Your web link states

"How do I remove IM-Names from my computer?
You may uninstall the software by using "Add/Remove Programs" in your control panel"

I'd re-install it and see it it shows up in Add/Remove

Make sure you disable it as a startup item and then make sure IM-svr.exe is not running in the background when you are trying to delete the folder? :confused:

Yah, thats what I thought. I disabled the running service because that's what caused the folder not to be deleted, then after I stopped the service, I immediatly disposed the folder into the recycling bin and I successfully deleted that folder. Thanks!!!!!!!!
