Microsoft Windows Messenger?
If MSN Messenger, then in the application itself:
TOOLS -> Options -> Preferences and uncheck everything. Click OK. Close
the Window. Right-click on the little blue dude near the clock (if there)
Then, go to this directory:
Erase everything EXCEPT "msmsgs.exe".
What that does is fool the checker into thinking you really have this
application and it allows the MSN Messenger (if you use it) to still access
the functions it needs (I believe.) It should silence your demon.
