Description:
In the internet options of internet explorer, you can specify which program windows should call for e-mail, newsgroup and internet call services. By default, you can change the programs called with these services per your need. But, on applying this registry setting the above services options turn disable and no further changes can be made to the program names. For this, go to start > run menu, enter regedit and navigate to the registry path listed below. If any of the sub keys internet explorer\control panel is not present, create it as explained below. Then, create a dword value messaging, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value to 1 which can disable the messaging services. However, if you want to enable the options back, change the value to 0 or delete the value. The changes take effect after a restart or logoff. When editing the registry it is highly recommended to run a quick scan for optimization, you can test your system now for free.
