Hi peacecat,

 

You do not require cd to install the MSN premium software; you can download the MSN software from the website.

 

Please find the steps in the link for the Installation of the MSN software:

If you have already installed the MSN premium software and you want to remove the Qwest logo and the sign up pop up we need to perform  clean uninstallation and reinstall the MSN software. Please find the below given steps: 

 

Take back up of your favorites folders, please find the below given location to find the MSN6 folder and save it on the desktop

 

For Win XP: C:\documents and settings\user\application data\MSN6

For Win vista and Win 7 c:\users\<USER NAME>\appdata\roaming\MSN6

Note :( Copy the folder which says MSN6 and save it to desktop without fail.)

 

Step 1:

Before you could uninstall the MSN software. Make sure you take backup of all the emails saved on ‘folders on computer’, please find the steps in the below given link:

(NOTE: If you are doing this process on several e-mail accounts, please change the last part of the file name so that you can identify the e-mail back-up. For example, instead of leaving it as MSN_Mail.msnbak you can change it to MSN_{EmailAddress1}.msnbak then later MSN_{EmailAddress2}.msnbak)
