Re: my love/hate relationship w/ msmsgs.exe My problem is the Messenge Plus! 2 I have tried to uninstall it via Add/Remove in the control panel but it gives me this error message: "Messenger Plus has NOT been uninstalled from your computer. Please try again later." Start/Programs does not show that Messenger Plus is even installed, however, windows explorer does reveal it being in a folder inside the Programs folder. I tried to do the uninstall via Safe Mode and got the same error message. Yesterday, I uninstalled MSN messenger and was left with the remains of msmsgs in start up, even though I had it disabled in the registry and start up folder so I then ran the instructions: RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove This did get rid of msmsgs but did it effect the ability to uninstall Messenger Plus? I am wondering if this is why I now cannot uninstall Messenger Plus! 2 I've also used the Ad-aware Add On utitily to disable Messenger Plus! 2 but I would like to uninstall it and have it permanently gone. I have never used it, will never use it, and don't know how it even got onto my computer since I never downloaded it. No one used my computer but me so I wonder if it arrived via a Windows update or something? Anyway, your help to uninstall this thing would be much appreciated.
