I'd remove the windows messenger by uncheck it at Add or Remove Program
> Windows Component.

But it still started everytime I start windows.
I saw the files still reside in Program Files > Messenger.

The Windows Messenger is not started in a way that I can see it. No
icon or anything ... but when I open the Task Manager, I saw that
process (msmsgs.exe) in the process list.

Anyway to remove it?

Stop Windows Messenger from Auto-Starting:

Disable the Contacts Pane. View | Layout.

If that does not do it, see:

http://www.fjsmjs.com/OE/disabmes.htm

And, you can try this:

Go to Start>Run>Regedit>OK. Find and delete the
following Registry Key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
\Software
\Microsoft
\Windows
\CurrentVersion
\Run
\MSMSGS - {Delete}


Alternatively, for XP/SP2 only:

If you want to disable Windows Messenger completely, use the Manage Add-on
feature.
Open IE - Hold Alt - Tap T and A. Disable Windows Messenger. It can be
enabled in the future should you want to.
