Default windows messenger

hey i have windows messenger pre installed on my OS (obviously) but i downloaded MSN, and even when i run MSCONFIG and under the start up tab i disable MSMGS (windows messenger) it still starts up, and automaticly logs me in, so i have to ctrl-alt-delete, and end the process to make it stop running. and then i can run MSN messenger. so do you guys think that i should take it outta my program files cause its kinda a pain in the arse.

To be honest, what i do when i first install Windows XP is go to program files and then delete Windows Messenger folder from it ... it may not be the most efficient way but it works
