Greetings,

If you're referring to MSN Messenger, you can uninstall it by going to the Add or Remove
Programs in the Control Panel. Otherwise for Windows Messenger, simply close down Messenger
if it's running (right click the messenger icon in the notification area/system tray and
click close). Then click the start button, then click Run and type in (copy-paste if you
like):
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

Then click OK.
Messenger will then be uninstalled. For more detailed instructions and screenshots, go to,

Hi,

No, Remote Assistance requires Windows Messenger to be installed.
