how to remove msn

I take it that you don't wish to use MSN for internet access. You can delete it from your network connections window.
Then you will have to set up a connection that will use either dial-up or some form of high-speed connection. That will become your default connection.

Windows Media Center comes up with Windows Messenger failure, though Messenger is installed and running. This seems to cause the program Guide to be Not Available. Norman

Click Start>Run then copy this text into the run box and click OK:

RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

This will uninstall Windows messenger 4.7 from your machine.
This is Windows messenger and not MSN messenger, Windows messenger comes bundled with all versions of XP and is meant for LAN messenging (your personal network in your home or office, if you have one)
