I dont know if this is individual to my computer but there seems to be 2 MSN Messenger processes that run. One is open when I run the program the other is always there. I recently decided to block it with Norton Internet Security. My question is what is this other messenger looking program?

Ok so one is the version 5 thing and the other is the updated version 7 messenger. So, then, why would the version 5 Windows messenger run all the time without being open or at least visibly open?

Uninstall Messenger 5.0 that is old-school big time! I also suggest get rid of Windows Messenger, it is totally upto you! If you are going to get rid of it use the XP Tweaks to remove!(it is pinned at the top of the page)
