I've had a very irritating pop-up box keep coming up while I'm online, and I'm not sure where to look in my system to get rid of it. It seems to be automatic, and I'm not sure how it lodged itself there in the first place, but it's just a large grey box, with a title "Messenger Service". The content is basically an advertisement and changes each time it pops up.
It's been popping up for over a week now, I kept clicking the "x" to close it because I haven't had time to bother with it, but tonight, I noticed at the bottom, it said "send e-mail to email@example.com for removal instructions". I thought I'd take a second and give it a shot, but of course, the e-mail bounced back as undeliverable - no such address, so I'm assuming it's just their way of getting around the "legalities of spam etc".
Can anyone tell me where I should look in my system to stop this little pest from starting up? I need a good fly swatter.
Thanks in advance.
