    OE 6 + Messenger (Win 98SE)

    Hi folks, a few days ago I finally installed SP 1 for MSIE 6. Tho' I have been using MSIE & OE 6 for some time, since this installation MS Messenger has been added to OE. Previously I could remove Messenger from the Control Panel>add remove programs, but not this time as Messenger does not show up on the list. I do not use it and would like to get it out of OE. Any thoughts on how I might remove it? <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    The Register has an article (also see the link near the bottom of the page): http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/24746.html. Can't attest, though, to how safe those methods are.

    Hi

    I used gpedit.msc to do what you are trying to do, and it created a delay in opening OE see my post Outlook takes 70 seconds to open.

    Best of Luck

    Hi

    I would like to send you a big thank you for your suggestion about the register.co.uk I downloaded the batch files and ran them it instantly solved problems with outlook express I had been dallying with for days. For ref I am running XP Pro and because I downloaded the latest version of Messenger it came standalone, so whilst it removed it from outlook I can still use it if wish to.

    Heartfelt Thanks and have a happy New Year

    Braddy
