You need to click on ' Add or remove programs' in the control panel, then look for MSN in the list that appears.

Let me know if its not there.

Also, have you tried system restore back to a point in time before it appeared ?

NOTE: Check the Show other restore points box to see any restore points (older) that may not be listed here.

9. To Show Affected Programs and Drivers
NOTE: This will show you a list of programs and drivers that will be deleted and restored by the selected restore point.
A) Click on the Show affected programs and drivers button. (See screenshot above)
