    I'm trying to uninstall MSN from my add/remove applet in Windows XP SP3. It allows me to start the process, but it does not go to the next step. Task manager shows it as running. I've tried restarting in safe mode and tried uninstalling it. No luck either. I even tried to uninstall it using the run command. No luck there either. I want to recover the 4.3mb from this. Thanks.

    I was able to remove it using regedt32. Located the directory and deleted. It's now gone. Thanks.

    Glad you managed to get it to work out in time. If you have any later problems with uninstalling programs,, You could try out revo uninstaller. It shows now mercy on files that like to stick around.
