  1. Get rid of Messenger


    Goodday Forum Friends:

    I hope every one I having a good day.
    I'm currently trying to get rid of a host of Microsoft crap that their system is trying to foist off on me. (There's about a half dozen I'm trying to work through.) Right now I'm trying to get rid of Messanger. Whenever I click on a Facebook friend I get a pop-up screen that informs me I have to install this junk on my system to make a connection. I have used the PowerShell to get rid of Groove, but so far that appears to be the only one it seems to work on.

    :)

  3. How do I get rid of this Facebook Messenger (oops, Chat - see my last few Replies) pop-up that I must have agreed to?

    I know that this Community is for Microsoft product issues only but I was feeling desperate and I hoped that somebody here could just jump in and at least tell me what was happening.

    I finally figured out on my own somehow that I'd somehow accepted to allow Facebook to turn ON their Chat system which they sent me some robo Notification that "25 of your Friends are using Chat. Would you like to?"

    So after I let it turn ON Chat, which I had no idea what it was, it suddenly kept letting any more of my Friends try to Chat with me, as they could now see whenever I was online.

    I finally figured out how to turn Chat OFF.
