This is what I did to rid me of MSMessenger at Startup:
From the Start menu, click Run, type in msconfig and click OK. That opens the System Configuration Utility. Click the Startup tab and then uncheck the msmsgs box. Next time you reboot, windows will tell you that you are running in Selective Startup and ask if you want to change this. Select select "Don't Show Me This Message on Startup" or something to this effect. If you don't, you'll get that message box each time you start Windows...
sorry...had a solution for you but this message board keeps screwing up the command lines required
