I keep getting these stupid popups on my desktop. The only thing I can think it would be is kazaa lite but im not sure. If anyone has any ideas what it might be please let me know.

start / run / services.msc

scroll down to messenger & disable it > you'll never see it again

That does not stop them (i have had it turned off for a while now and they still get through), i am not alone on this either ! a permanent fix is to block Port 135 using either windows firewall or another one.

I use Sygate firewall so i will post how to block those nasty messages getting through using Sygate.

First :-

Setting an "advanced rule" to block Port 135;

1. From Main Screen Select Menu's... {Tools} {Advanced Rules}.
2. Choose "Add" to create a new rule.
3. On General Tab:
Give rule a description
Choose "Block All Traffic"
Choose "Apply to all network interface cards"
Choose to Apply this rule during screen saver mode "Both on and off"
4. On Hosts Tab:
Choose to apply this rule to "All Addresses"
5. On Ports and Protocols tab:
Choose "TCP" as protocol.
Leave Remote port blank.
Type in "135" in the Local Port box.
Choose "Both" for traffic direction.
6. On Scheduling Tab:
Disable scheduling
7. On Applications tab:
Do not check any applications
8.When you have all the settings entered, click "ok" to create the rule.

I have stopped all of mine and with messenger back on...

:mad:

BonyTony thats dreadful news

I've not had a single popup since disabling messenger > I am loathed to start using a firewall to block ports > its bad enough being on dial-up.

I'm with SPeedY_B on this > a nice little proggie that can bounce em right back at the sender would be ideal



:huh:

save yourself all the fuss, change the network name to anything apart from mshome or workgroup. thats why most still get spam.

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
