    You want to disable the 'Messenger Service.' Go to Run and type 'services.msc' (no quotes) and then disable this service.

    A similar thread exists here.

    This is directly from MicroSquish...
    You can also use your own Firewall Proggy if you don't want to use the built in Firewall that XP has... such as Zone Alarm, Norton Personal Firewall 2003, BlackIce Defender or whatever.

    Ad-Muncher will also take care of the problem with Messenger Service and many other pop-ups. You can even enable IP scramble on this magnificent pop-up program. (The best I've tested so far, and I've tested most of them).
