Win 98--remove msmsgr

I know that tons of spyware make use of msmsgr to infest computers, and I suspect the same is true with mine. While I have found out how to remove it from XP, convoluted though the process is, how do I remove it from Windows 98SE?

Just a guess, but is it listed under windows components when you click on the add/remove program button on the control pannel?
