View Full Version : Windows Messanger in XP

02-07-2002, 03:07 PM
I have XP Pro installed on my pc. Windows Messenger installed itself with the OS. It seems to be dramatically slowing my dial-up connection for E-mail, especially when downloaded or uploading file attachments, which I do a lot of.

I has tried to disable Messenger, turning it off etc, but every time I open either Outlook or Outlook Express, Messenger opens again.

Do you know how I can rid myself of this pesky, unwanted piece of software>
