Eddie who? Edward (Derek Riggs' little boy)?

Can't you just go to [Start]->[Settings]->[Control panel]->Add/Remove programs ?

I know I removed it, I just forgot how. ( Yes I seriously dislike all those messengers, they are too pushy for me. )
But if you have the filename of the executable... You can rename it and see what goes wrong where. ( it should start whining about "Not being able to find blablaMSGR" when it tries to start that. ).

Maybe that works :tazz:

So indeed, Derek Riggs little boy ;)
( the guy who made cover artwork for Iron Maiden ( and Gammaray ) )
Of course I know him! Had my room full with pictures of him.
Cool ;)

Sorry I can't help you much on the messenger-problem. My machine at home had its contents spread out over the floor this weekend, so I haven't been able to look into it much.
If I find anything, I know where to find you. :tazz:
