My missus has installed messenger and it now takes the PC longer to start up, tried disabling it from startup but it still starts up when i restart the computer.

Cant seem to find it in Control Panel to uninstall it, any techies here help me out?

Not sure if it is the same in Vista, but in XP, click Start then Run and type msconfig into the Run dialog box and you can view what runs at startup and uncheck against applications which you don't want to open automatically.

Your Windows Live Messenger has been installed as part of Windows Live Essentials. If you go to Programs and Features, then double click Windows Live Essentials, you will see the option to remove Windows Live Messenger or you could try running this msiexec /x {0AAA9C97-74D4-47CE-B089-0B147EF3553C}

Where it says go to start->run, just type it in the search box on Vista, it finds it fine
