In Windows XP, how can I disable Windows Messenger?



To disable Windows Messenger in Windows XP, follow the
steps below:


  1. Click the Start button and select Run... .





  2. In the Run dialog box, enter
    gpedit.msc .




  3. Under "Computer Configuration", click the
    + (plus sign) next to "Administrative Templates". Then
    click the + (plus sign) next to "Windows Components".





  4. Click Windows Messenger.




  5. On the right side of the window, you will now see two options. One
    will keep Windows Messenger from running on startup, and the other
    will prevent Windows Messenger from running altogether. To activate
    either one, double-click it and then select enabled.
