XP Pro problems and tweaking

so i've got win xp pro now. overall i really like it, but i have a question or two:

1. is there any way to stop crappy msn messenger loading every time i open outlook express? i'm an icq man, and closing messenger everytime i use my email is p!ssing me off!

2. i have a 98 machine networked to my xp machine. if i switch my second computer off, and boot my xp machine, then i get a wierd error message. what's up with that?

3. does ntfs give any real advantage over fat32? i converted my primary partition, but i'm reluctant to convert my second partition. it has A LOT that i don't want to lose.

4. anyone know of any vital xp tweaks that i shouldn't live without? i've got tweakui for xp, and have done the obvious tweaks. i'm not so fussed about windows opening 1s faster or anything. just major application-speed boosts.

thanks peeps! will update if i find any other buggses..

Cool

To get rid of the msn messanger, follow this steps:
Open the file sysoc.inf in notepad. You find the file in your windows\inf - folder.
Search for the line: msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7
Remove hide , so the line looks like: msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,7 and save the file.
After this change, Windows Messenger will appear in Add or Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components, and you can remove it for good.

I thought there was something fishy in beantown when this couldn't be removed from add/remove...

Thanks for the help!! I've been trying to get rid of this through the menus during 3 recent installs with no success.
