Removing MSN Messenger Completely on three computers

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I have three workstations in a small office and i would like to have MSN Messenger removed from these three computers. I would like the employees working on these three computers to focus on their work instead of chatting.

I went to Add/Remove Programs, but did not find MSN Messenger in the program list. It is installed because I see it in the task bar and the employees are able to use it to chat.

Where should I remove MSN Messenger on my computer and why is this option not visible?

Why is it not listed in the Add/Remove Programs list?

Help me.

Hi there

You can remove MSN in Add/Remove programs, the reason you probably can't find it there is because it is hidden. First thing you need to do is unhide so you can see it in Add/Remove programs then uninstall it there:

  • First go to C:windowsinf
  • Find the file named sysoc.inf and open it with notepad.
  • In the image below, find the line highlighted.
  • In the line, remove the word hide like so…
  • Save the file then close.
  • Now go back to Add/Remove programs then at the left side click Add/Remove Windows Component.
  • Choose MSN from the choice and Follow the instructions.

Or there is a simple command you can run in Run, open run and type in RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%infmsmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove and press OK. This should remove MSN.
