    The Messenger service popups have nothing to do with MSN Messenger 6.

    All you have to do to stop these popups is go to Start>Run, type msconfig, double click "Messenger Service," click the Stop button, and set it to "Disabled"

    Don't use messesger 6. Have you turned off messenger (nothing to do with windows messenger) in the services?

    Control Panel/Administrative tools/services.
