A while back I had a harddrive crash, so I bought a new one and loaded windows. It came with an older version of MSN messenger and I tried to remove it, I then updated to the newest version of MSN messenger. I use the Email button on my keyboard to check hotmail, and gmail, and when I do that, it makes the older version of MSN Messenger reappear.

Any Ideas?

Hi too_ sly. Hey, that rhymes. :thumbsup:
Anyway, double click "Keyboard" in Control Panel. Any options in there to remap the email keyboard button? If not, check the websites of the Computer and\or keyboard maker for drivers or special software it may need. Or if you like, just post both here.

Also you are talking about an older version of MSN Messenger... but correct me if I am wrong you might be talking about Windows Messenger... It's the same basic idea but comes preinstalled with Windows.

I can't remember is you can uninstall it but if you go to Set Program Acess and Defaults I think that you can switch it with the MSN Messenger.
