If you have installed nothing from MSN then yes, you can simply delete the
C:\Program Files\MSN folder which I seem to recall contains very little.
You should use v1.33 on Win Me.
If you don't have TweakUI the latest version of TweakUI for Win Me (1.33)
can be obtained from

Download to a folder with a short name (e.g. C:\Tweak), run to extract
components, right click on tweakui.inf and then install, close the help
window that comes up to allow install to finish. C:\Tweak can now be
deleted and TweakUI accessed via the Control Panel.
Just a few words of caution though if you are new to using TweakUI on Win
a) Do not change the first icon (My Documents) on the Desktop tab.
Doing this causes a number of script errors in Special Folders when using
either WebView or Active desktop.
b) Do not uncheck "Search Results" on the Desktop tab.
Doing this disables the Search in Explorer.
c) Do not hide the TweakUI icon on the Control Panel tab.
d) Do not uncheck "Show Control Panel on Start Menu" on the IE tab.
Doing this will prevent you from accessing the Control Panel including
e) Do not uncheck "Shell Enhancements" on the IE tab.
This causes quite a few unexpected "problems".
