I've followed the FAQ for a XP m/c with XP SP1 installed, tried the method of removing it fro mthe start menu etc... and that's not enough, so I tried the first two options in Susan B's FAQ, and neither are working... It comes upwith an error when tring to do Option 2, and it simply wont let me remove the tick box from beside Windows Messenger when doing option 1.

Has anybody had a similar experience and if so, how did they overcome it (If at all...)

Cheers

It comes up with a Warning:
