      One possible way to block MSN messenger is to block access to the domain hotmail.com as I believe this is used for MSN login

            you might also want to block

            http://webmessenger.msn.com/
            http://www.wbmsn.net/
            http://www.e-messenger.net/ (msn, aol and yahoo)

            theres a few more as well but cant remember off the top of my head just do a search on google im sure you'll find loads,

            students at my schools started using that after msn messenger was blocked.

              And believe me it worked out I made my enemies dance to my tunes!
