I just installed Windows XP and now I am unable to use MSN Messenger 6 or above. And I have to use Windows Messenger. When i used Windows 98, it worked fine , but now it doesn't work on XP. Why?

Disable/Remove Windows Messenger
Copyright 2002 - Doug Knox

Note: If you choose to uninstall Windows Messenger on a system with SP1 installed, you will receive an error message about "un-registering" an OCX file. This is normal, and doest not affect the removal process. Windows Messenger will still be removed.

This utility will allow you to disable Windows Messenger on per-user basis, or on a machine wide basis. Download the ZIP file and extract MessengerDisable.exe to your hard drive. You can either double click the EXE file, or create a shortcut to it, as you prefer. You can, optionally, use this utility to remove Windows Messenger from your machine. You may need Administrator level privileges to run this program.

To reinstall Windows Messenger for Windows XP, visit http://www.microsoft.com/windows/messenger and download the latest version.

Download MessengerDisable here

Hi ... I had the same problems when i reformat my windows xp pro version ...what i did was i updated 4.6 messenger to 4.7 then afterward i when to the run command and enter this

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

which it will remove 4.7 messenger off your computer ... also after rebooting it will ask you if you want to remove everything to do with 4.7 say yes .... Once that is done download msn messenger 6.1 .... Then you shouldn't have anymore problems once 4.7 is removed

Here is where 6.1 is >> http://messenger.msn.com/

Hi ... Well how about you enable your msn back ... I am assuming you mean 4.7 messenger and if so when you enable it back try doing this >>> go to start >>> run >>> and copy this >>>

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

then paste it in the run command ............................

This will remove anything to do with 4.7 .... Reboot your computer and answer yes when it will ask you whether if you want to remove everything for 4.7 ... Then once its off ... download 6.1 clean again
