how the how do i get rid of these??

you know this new form of advertising that is like a net send msg.
its the worst because it steals the focus of my OS, which is a REAL problem when playing something like counterstrike, so is there way to turn this crap off?

please excuse me if this isnt the right thread for this kind of inquiry, if a admin could please bump this over to the prefered thread if this is not the right spot for it. thanks alot.

Turn the messanger service off in services. Start\administrative tools\services. Look for messanger service and disable it. Don't be fooled this is not part of the instant messaging program.

Hi LOCK|DOWN,

First off welcome to the boards:D

To disable messenger in services

Right click on My Computer>manage>WMI Control>Services.

Make your way down to Messenger and double click on it and then select disable then click your way out, disabling this service has no effect on MSNM service.


This apparently stops the spam advertising coming through MSNM

Hope this helps you

Alan

-Windows Components
-Windows Messenger

Here you can enable "Do not allow Windows Messenger to be run" and "Do not automatically start Windows Messenger initially"

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
