Is it possible to either uninstall, remove, or just delete Instant Messenger
without effecting other programs or total meltdown of the system? I am
running XP Home Edition.

You really cant "uninstall instant message" from messenger,however if you
edit the contacts and delete that instant message contact,its no longer valid
and wont show or run anymore.

Sorry the command was split by the advertisement on the side of the
page:
The %winder%\INF portion are joined as one complete command.
