    That will only remove MSN Messenger from the start menu but it'll remain in ur system and pop up when u least expect it. The entry for Messenger is hidden in the Add/Remove tab. To view it u have to go to <Windows\Inf\Syscoc.inf.>. There, look for this line =msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide ,7. Delete the hide keeping the commas. Now u can uninstall it from Add/Remove. But if u use SP1, it will come back if u use outlook or if some other program asks for messenger (like IE, Msn, etc.). A better option is to go to "Set Program Access Defaults" and select Custom and there disable access to MSN Messenger.
