    ^ But that wont block the application.

    Its just preventing it from trigger-running during startup.

    ctrl+alt+del, end process ..

    if you want to get rid of them so they dont run at startup, use msconfig ..

    still wanna go deeper?

    registry = HKLM>local machine>software>windows>run/run once and delete the reg keys for softwares you dont want to run at startup

    To permanently block msnmsgr.exe why don't you just uninstall it?

    As for iexplore.exe, you're running it because you use Internet Explorer. Stop using it and it won't run.

    ^ yeah i thought i would say the same, but you gotta make sure that process is indeed genuine explorer and msn .. gotta check origin and activity ..
