    Hi there,

    I have some old accounts in Microsoft Messenger - so when I go to login, and select which account I want to use there is some old ones that I don't want to be displayed anymore. This is especially annoying because my friend used Messenger on my computer once, and is username is in the drop down box and it's extremely annoying!

    I have tried deleting Messenger, and reinstalling it, and and doing this for all associated files, but when I reinstall the software, it still picks up my old accounts.

    Microsoft Messenger should have a feature to remove old accounts from being displayed. Does anyone know of a way to do this?!

    Thanks for your help,

    Shaun

    This is a common problem I think. Try deleting the Messenger with AppZapper?

    Have you tried getting rid of the Microsoft Messenger Data folder in Home > Documents > Microsoft User Data (this will delete your custom emoticons, but I suppose you could try deleting only the cache folder in there)?

    Try using Adium. You won't regret making the change.

    I love MSN Messenger, but the one for the PC, the one for Mac is just horrible.
