    The other day I was playing CS and all of a sudden this message came up:



    Not only did it inturrupt my game, it's the 3rd one and I'm getting angry about this... It seems the possiblities of spam are endless...

    I use Sygate Personal Firewall on Windows 2000 Pro, and noticed internet activity with:
    C:/WINNT/system32/services.exe
    C:/WINNT/system32/svchost.exe
    while I was playing CS. So I went ahead and set my firewall to block all online traffic to those 2 files. Imma see if this helps. Any other ideas how to stop this new annoying way of spam????

    go to services and disable the messenger service and u wont get these anymore, it is an exploit in the service which is supposed to be used by network admins to send messages to puters

    This has to do with Windows so if I were you, I would move it to Softwareworld.

    You can send these as well if you wish.

    there is a utility out there called netsend xp pro.

    Or the netsend dos command will work.

    I always send stupid messages to my mates on icq and msn. There is no better way of tell someone Your a idiot and if you don't leave me alone i will delete your hdd then by one of these messages.

    but to send u have to have the service enabled and then there is a chance of u receiving them too i usually just turn the service on when i need it
