Unistalling MSN Messenger from Windows Mobile 2003

Does anyone know how to remove MSN Messenger from a Windows Mobile 2003 op system or can direct me to a link that will tell how.

I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks

If such is in the ROM it can't be removed.

This is a PDA and not a PC so the concepts you learned on your PC don't apply.

can it be blocked or shut down?

I am aware the program is located in the ROM of the PDA, I was just hoping there was some "techy" way to unistall it. Is there any way to block it or shut it down....just to keep it from opening up?

Tks again

Here's what I know.

I write some PalmOS applications and am preparing to port them to PocketPC. I won't enter into a discussion about the OS name of PPC, PocketPC, Mobile or such since underneath they are all the same...

Ok, here's an hint at what I know about this. http://www.geocities.com/palmpass/index.html

But I can't comment deeply on your issue because there are no details. No make, model, etc. Even then it's still not feasible to alter the ROM or even if it was FLASH, no one does that today. We did it back in 2000 but the support headaches were too much.

As to why it opens up, I can't guess. Your post is welcome but consider what you gave the forum to work with.

-> In closing what does it's maker's support have to say?

You may be looking for a TWEAK program.

Here's one example.

Notice how it can hide some icons? This is not a native feature of this OS or phone. Why I wanted the make/model is that we are finding the cell companies do modify the base OS so I can't be sure of anything on PocketPCs.

If that tweaker doesn't do it,maybe another will.

-> Yes, support is grim to none on such devices. Tell me about it.
