Do those "pop-up messages" that are appearing have "Messenger Service" in their titlebar? If
so, what you're seeing is the Messenger service built-in to Windows, not MSN/Windows
Messenger (which are two different things) which spammers are exploiting -- this is not
Microsoft, nor can Microsoft control them anymore than they can control spam to your e-mail
I use Windows XP and ...
To get rid of these pop ups
you'll need to disable the "Messenger Service"
and click OK
Scroll down to Messenger
and then choose Properties
Under startup type
and then choose the Stop button
After the service is stopped
if you're on a Company Lan ... this may also
stop intergroup messages ...
