The program to delete flash player says it will continue after I close Windows Live Messenger. I did, then opened task manager, and it didn't list Messenger as running. However the installer insisted that it was. Now what?

Some programs don't fully close when you click the red "X" in right top corner of window -- PSI ( is one, (but can't say of Messenger). What you need to do is right click on the tray icon (bottom right task bar), and select EXIT from the choices. Although, strange that there was no running process in task mgr.
