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
inbox.

I use Windows XP and ...

To get rid of these pop ups
you'll need to disable the "Messenger Service"
click Start
then Run
enter services.msc
and click OK
Scroll down to Messenger
select it
right-click it
and then choose Properties
Under startup type
choose Disabled
and then choose the Stop button
After the service is stopped
click OK

if you're on a Company Lan ... this may also
stop intergroup messages ...

Man I hate popups...

Wait, hang on... there is one message waiting for me!  Oh!  And I have been selected as a winner in something!

Maybe popups aren't so bad after all.

Excellent!

I have been getting these annoying messages at the worst possible times.  This morning, I received one for "university diplomas."  

Thank you for the tip, Rex.
