    Hi,

    Your rudeness aside, the question may not have been answered until the post after yours. The question hunter asked was how to stop Messenger from popping up ads, not how to stop the new form of ads from suddenly appearing on his desk, even if Messenger isn't open.

    Beware the Ant-I-One patch. I am not saying it was done intentionally but clicking the link adds active x controls and vload dlls and other malicious stuff that will cause your IE 6 browser to lock and become useless. The only way I was able to get my browser back was to run SpyBot Search and Destroy. There were seven malicious entries.

    Fungiver: thats a little odd as the link Ant -|- One has provided is a link to another thread on these forums.

    Oh and you also reported the post to a moderator of a different forum, easy mistake.
