Can anyone help me out with a script that I can run on my Win2K3 / XP and 2K domain that will remove MSN messenger?
* 60 nodes need MSN removing.
The easiest way. Please spoon feed me
Put in a hash rule or a path rule to the exe in software restrictions policy or put a nfts permission with the ad group with a deny all in a gpo

This will be the problem. I often find this an issue with software restriction policies.other workstations have different versions
Path rule will do the job. If they installed live measanger then I know that install into a different folder than normal measanger put a path rule on both
We run the following script on a machine before its imaged. It removes it from the machine
Code:'xp_messsenger_remove.vbs - Removes Windows Messenger from Windows XP '© Doug Knox - 3/30/02 'Downloaded from www.dougknox.com Option Explicit On Error Resume Next 'Dimension variables Dim WSHShell, MyBox, p1, q1, rcmd Dim jobfunc 'Set the Windows Script Host Shell and assign values to variables Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") p1 = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Hide Messenger" q1 = 2 rcmd = "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove" 'Create or change the Hide Messenger value WSHShell.RegWrite p1, q1 'Run the uninstall command WshShell.Run(rcmd)

I use a path rule and it stops the kids using it. The only problem is you have to put a path rule in for the paths and name of different versions.
