Is anyone else getting these damn 'Messenger Service' popups?
There basically just message grey message boxs with advertisements in them. I thought it was realated to windows messager, but i haven't even got that loaded!

I'll post one when the next one comes.

Right click on "My Computer" (this is assuming that you have XP or 2000) select "Manage." "Services and Applications", "Services" Find the "Messenger" service. Right click on it and select "Properties" Set "Startup type" to "Disabled"
"Stop" the service. There, you should never see one of those again. The messenger service is not used by most home users. It is in no way related to MSN Messenger. Hope this helps.

Its the windows messenger service, not the MS messenger. They are two different things. To stop the messages go into your services and shut down the messenger service.

Cheers for that mate, makes sense that that will do the trick. So that is what picks up all 'net send' events put onto the network.

Cheers for the responses everyone.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
