Q. How do I disable MSN Messenger using group policies? – Brian Cunliffe
To use group policy to remove messenger. First go to Start – Run – type “gpedit.msc”
Then drill down to :
- Computer ConfigurationAdministrative TemplatesWindows ComponentsWindows Messenger(Set both items to Enabled)
This will disable it for you.
You can also use the registry (Start – run – regedit) to achieve similar results.
Drill down to:
PreventRun=1 Will prevent MSN Messenger from running
PreventAutoRun=1 Will prevent MSN from popping up automatically.
Set/create both these DWORD entries to 1 to disable MSN Messenger.
