Today Karsten has been added to my list of heroes with an answer to an annoying problem – Live Messenger behavior on Windows 7 now operates differently when you minimize and close (and I don’t like it)!
downloaded IE7 Beta (optimized for Google!). I found there is no way to turn off (permanently) messenger. Now it takes me 30 seconds longer to boot up each day. I find no place/option to select turning messenger off, no uninstall utility, no messenger program to delete under control panel. Guess I could install an older version, hopefully it would delete it. Other ideas?
You remove Live Messenger in Control Panel, Add/Remove programs. If I have somehow missed what you are looking for you may need to find someone who is consistently posting about IE or Messenger, my area is with Office Communications Server.
