under services, disable the messenger service
under startup, uncheck MsnMsgr, msmsgs
also if you use outlook or other office products, check your settings to make sure there isn't a check mark beside enable messaging... this launches msnmsgr and msmsgs
the windows messenger is tied into the os and to MS Office.. you may remove it, and you won't look like you're online, but it's still there and it's still running
