Messenger is there by default on windowsXP. I have also noticed it on some versions of IE 6...it starts as soon as outlook express 6 is started. Perhaps some of your users use Outlook ex. while others don't.
Good luck!

Installing MSN Messenger is an option when installing IE 5.5 or 6

As answer 1 stated, it installs by default in XP.

Removal instructions are posted at www.aumha.org and www.onecomputerguy.com

If any of your users use Windows Update, It willbe on the list of recomended updates.

The latest version will not let you open IE or OE without first opening MSN Messenger.

Check out the Tech Republic articles on chat and messaging programs.

For my home system, I removed MSN and installed Trillian for my kids to use.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run subkey and delete the MSMSGS value - This is for XP. For other versions of Windows you'll need to search the registry for the MSMSGS value. Deleting this value doesn't remove the program, it just keeps it from running at startupl
