    I dont know if this goes in here or in applications, but its about the network messenger thing. I get these popup messenger windows (an example i put together attached) on a regs with some file sharing programs *cough* KaZaA... and was wondering if there was a way to stop it?

    When I asked my freind about it he sent me a program.. which is what I used to make my example - dont think he QUITE got what I was trying to ask. :rolleyes:

    (The file he sent is 'Send Anonymous Messages with WinNT 2K & XP.exe' if you was wondering).

    Turning off the "Messenger" service in Services should do it, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.

    Yeah, just turn off messenger, makes things a LOT better.
    right click my computer>manage>services and applications>services>right click messenger>stop>then right click again>properties>there should be a disable feature where it says start by default (or something like that)

    Hope it helps.
