Run the Windows Live general installer and uncheck the box next to Messenger. You may need to uncheck other boxes as well so you don't download other apps that you don't want.

Remove useless program form the start up.
To much programs loaded is the reason. You can
Click on Start >> Run and in the run line type in “msconfig” hit enter or click on OK.
Next click on the Start Up tab. By default all items are usually checked, but you can remove any items that you don’t feel need to be running when you start your computer.
After you have made your selection, click Apply, OK and Restart. You should now notice a remarkable improvement in your start up time.

You should have an entry for it in the Programs and Features section of the Control Panel. If not you can download it again from here:

Essentials - Windows Live

Hi Victek
I have tried the installer, but it is already loaded and I cannot uncheck or remove it?

I also ran msconfig and start up that sevenming suggested, but its not even listed there?

Any ideas??

If you use the Change/Uninstall link in Programs and Features it should give you the option to uncheck the box next to Messenger (I just tried it).

You will not see an entry for Messenger in Programs and Features. You will see an entry for Windows Live Essentials. That is what you have to select. After clicking on it choose Uninstall (not repair). Then you will be able to select messenger for removal.
