first uninstall plus and then see if you uninstall msn 7.5. It may be necassary to reiinstall 7.5 in order to uninstall it.

download microsoft's msi cleanup utility: http://support.micro...om/?kbid=290301
(link for download is toward the bottom).

installed and then run utility. look for the offending program. highlight and click remove.

This does not remove the program, only the installationi info for it. try reinstalling the program to see if it allows you to remove it.
