    Windows Messenger 4.7 ~ annoying
    « on: May 14, 2006, 04:48:51 AM »
    Not long ago I downloaded Messenger 7.5 which I use all the time but somehow the old Windows Messenger 4.7 intervenes in the background unbeknowns to me, when the new one isn't open.

    The old version opens when I am doing something else and I find a conversation going on with people I've never heard of let alone have on my friends' list! They are quite rude when they see I'm there ~ who'd blame them!

    Can someone please help me to get rid of the old Messenger or at least disable it somehow. I tried to disable it by opening msconfig and taking it out of the startup list but it doesn't seem to work and I can't find it in add/remove programs.

    I have a new Dell computer with XP Home SP2.

    Thank you for your help :)

      You might try this:

      Start>Search "msmsgs.exe" (without quotes)

      When the "msmsgs.exe" file comes up, right click on it and select Properties

      In the Properties window, select "Version" If it is the Version you are looking for,
      delete it.
