    Remove Windows Messenger

    If you do not use Windows Messenger then why not uninstall it. Every time you start up your computer, Messenger also starts up which can slow everything down and use up more system resources. To uninstall it:

    1. Click on the Start button and select Run.
    2. Type "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove" in the text box and click OK. You will see a progress bar appear shortly as it deletes its files and it will then ask you to reboot. After the reboot the program will be gone.

    No, it should not cause any problems, it is a standard tip.
