Hi all

I use MSN Messenger all the time, but lately my computer
keeps signing me into WIndows Messenger first whenever I
connect to the internet. Since Windows Messenger is vastly
vastly inferior, could someone please tell me how to get
rid of it from my computer? I have searched for the file
and cannot actually find the application anywhere on my
hard drive, so I don't even know where it's coming from.

Many thanks,
Jon

Any of those two should do for you.
