  • Pam says:

    McAfee security hiccupped over my intention to download ZapMessenger. There were a few red flags raised over possible adware etc but I went ahead trusting McAfee to do its job if needed. ZapMessenger downloaded the file to remove Windows Live Messenger in a few seconds. I unzipped the file, it ran and in less than 5 minutes even the system tray icon was removed. I shut down and re-booted to a Messenger free screen. Thanks ZapMessenger, you did really zap it. PS check to comfirm installation of .NET framework 2.0 before using this program.

  • Kylie says:

    Thanks so much for this tool. Tried everything and you resolved my issues! :)

  • eliran says:

    it removes , however once you put messenger 8.5 a message comes up asking to install a new version ,

    something from registry stays , anyone knows how to completely remove it ?

  • windows says:

    wow! Much thanks, I was a bit skeptical at first – but it worked very fast! This also works with the problem where the installer thinks that the messenger is still installed, even though its not. very good bud, thanks!
