    Is there any way to stop those naggin little messages that people send to you via the messenger service? i got a win xp machine without a trace of spyware and i get loads of them suckers all the time. Is it as easy as disabling the messenger service. Would this affect anything else i might use on the said system?

    Cheers

    Can we put a front page news article up with flashing pink text telling people that the messenger service has nothing to do with MSNM ? :p

    To catch attention, perhaps it could alternate between illuminous pink and bright lime green?
