Hello,
I downloaded and installed msn content plus thinking that it would be a cool little add on to msn messneger however now I get this nag telling me to register it. The trial was nothing to brag about so I uninstalled it. Now I am still getting the same nag teling me to register it. I looked through registry but I am not sure what is for the messenger and what is for the content plus. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is me again..

Finally it's removed..

Do the following:
Please press Ctrl+Atl+Del to invoke Task-Manager then kill the process named "MSNAppM.exe". You can find and delete msnappm.exe in system directroy(eg, C:\Windows\MSNAppM.exe ).

:tazz:

Try it & reply plz..

Hi..

First you have to do the following:
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del when it prompt you to register, then go to Task manager Processes & point to MSNAppM.exe then right-click & End Precess.

Second:
Go to C:\Windows, search for MSNAppM.exe then right-click on it & Delete.

I guarantee it should stop prompting after these steps..

click on "start" then click on "run" type in c:\windows then "enter", then scroll down for "msapps" and "delete" it.
That should help you.

Hi ilaawsgd

Before going to c:/windows you have to go to your disk top & press Ctrl+Alt+Del to stop
MSNAppM.exe (by right-click & End Precess), then go to c:/windows & delete MSNAppM.exe ..

Try it now..
