Default Remove Windows Messenger

Somehow, in the process of changing identities. I wound up signing in to
Windows Messenger./ It is a real nuisance, pop ups and all.

How can I get this worm out of my comp? Guess I'm not surprised it doesn't
appear in CP/Add or Remove Programs

Thx
Dave

Greetings Dave,

To do so you'll need to click the Start button, then click Run and enter:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
Then click OK.
