Someone with the e-mail address Benedict.nirmal@hotmail.com keeps appearing
on my MSN messenger. I have tried to block and remove this contact, it keep
re appearing. When I went to remove MSN messenger, it worked but each time I
boot up, it tries to reload. Does anyone know who this is (virus, etc) and
how to get rid of it?

The simple thing to do, is if you don't want MSN then just disable it in
the registry.


Step 1) To Disable Messenger MSN from running go to the start menu and
select RUN. In the window that appears type regedit (see example below)

Step 2) The Registry editor will now have opened. Navigate to the
following Key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft


Now create a new key by selecting Edit from the main menu bar. Now
select New then Key.

Name this new Key: Messenger



Step 3) Now select the newly created Messenger Key and create another
new Key. Only this time we are going to name it: Client (The key should
look like the example below...)

Step 4) Next we have to create a DWORD value. So Right Click the new
Client Key and select New then DWORD.

Name the DWORD PreventRun

Step 5) Now we need to give it a Data Value of 1

Step 6) Now restart Windows XP and you will have successfully Disabled
Messenger MSN

IMPORTANT: This procedure contains information about modifying the
registry. Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and
make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem
occurs. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the

This is the option to disable MSN. But how to remove the contact...he says
it has been imposible to do it... Maybe he wants do dissable MSN but what
about if he wants do reinstall it later? Then the contact will appear again
isn't ?

im not very familiar with the use of MSN messenger, but i think u must have
the option to remove ur contacts by page, i mean not in the msn messenger
but au contraire on ur profile settings.

Sorry if i not help u a lot...but try to go to ur profile settings on ur
"user page" and delete this "contact"

p.d u also have the option to create another account... but if u have a lots
of contacts....i dont know if u can import ur contacts from another
account...there's one utility to import ur contacts on yahoo
messenger...maybe theres a similar for the msn messenger. Check Google.
