    Search Enhancement Pack

    Hi

    Installed XP SP3, followed by latest Windows Live Messenger - version 2009
    (does not say 'Beta').

    Everytime after booting the machine, a window called "Microsoft" pops up
    showing in (only) a folder called "Search Enhancement Pack"

    Could someone help me find a way to remove this pop up window (without
    having to uninstall WLM)? I moved the folder to My Documents and re-booted
    but still the window pops up (now empty).

    Thanks

    Greetings,

    Weird -- the Search Enhancement Pack is part of the Live toolbar, not Messenger.

    You can try removing the Pack itself by click Start, then Run, entering the following:
    msiexec /x {299CF645-48C7-4FA1-8BCD-5CE200CF180D}
    and clicking OK.

    I saw the same thing on XP SP3. The Search Enhancement Pack gets
    installed even if the Toolbar is not selected to install. That
    opening window in explorer is really annoying. I did get it
    uninstalled by using your suggestion. Thanks.

    Re: Search Enhancement Pack

    Greetings,

    What's specified here is for the previous version, so it won't work.

    Instead, do:
    msiexec /x {9C9CEB9D-53FD-49A7-85D2-FE674F72F24E}

    Re: Search Enhancement Pack

    Hey Jonathan Kay,

    do you have to have installed all the parts of the Search Enhancement Pack
    in order to remove it. My dad's computer keeps popping up the folder
    "Microsoft" I have used RUN with both codings and neither have erased the
    pop up. What do we do next?

    Can we just delete the microsoft folder?

    RE: Search Enhancement Pack

    Here this is what I did to get rid of problem. On run type msconfig then
    press ok then go to service tab look for seago uncheck box restart computer.
    when complete. Go to my computer double click on c drive. click on program
    files and you will find somewhere. from there you can delete it
