If Jayefuu's suggestion doesn't work try this onewww.instructables.com/id/How-to-stop-Windows-Live-Messenger-from-popping-up/.  It attacks from inside the program itself.

Hold the windows button and press R to bring up the windows run dialog box.

Type "msconfig" and hit enter.

On the window that appears click the "startup" tab. Find the messenger row and untick it. It's often called msmsgs. Click apply then restart your computer.

Hope this helps.
