then check if messenger stup is your start up option. Go to your start run and type msconfig. On the pop up you will start up tab make sure is uncheck. Also if do not see it in add/remove that means it already been uninstalled

Some times installed applications will not be displayed in Add/Remove programs list due to various reasons.
Run the setup for messenger
Setup will ask you whether to repair or remove/uninstall messenger
select uninstall

this should remove messenger from your system

It can not really be 'un-installed' as it is part of the operating system. You can however make sure it will not run by following Microsoft's recommended procedures...
