windows mesenger pop-up

Window messenger keeps giving me a pop-up saying it needs to verify me e-mail address.  I do not use windows messenger, I use AIM.  I want to stop the pop ups and get rid of windows messenger if possible.

Hello saintsfanpk3 =)

If you prefer to remove Windows Messenger manually, click Start, Run and enter the following command:

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

Note: This will prevent a long delay when opening Outlook Express if you have the Contacts pane enabled.  To prevent this, click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT  Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Right click in the right pane and select New, Dword value. Give it the name Hide Messenger Double click this new entry and set the value to 2.
