    I'm not talking about "MSN Today" or anything like that but some prompts that appear advertising crap like "I'm someone looking for boy in US". Man it pisses me off.

    But what? A USEFUL pop-up appeared advertising to stop this crap. The website is:

    http://www.stopthiscrap.com/

    Nothing's free though ...

    In the world of KaZaA Lite it is Anyone have this?

    Can't you configure your firewall to stop them?

    I *think* your talking about dialog boxes that pop-up, but appear to be advertising things?

    To stop this, run msconfig, and take MSN messenger SERVICE off the start up. OR put your firewall settings higher (i.e. on ZA Pro, Med security level stops them, if they're from the internet).

    I hope you didn't pay for anything for any software because it's free to get rid of those messages. Just follow the insructions on this page.

    EDIT: LOL, me and spudlover posted at the same time, and the same solution.

    Who is your daddy and what does he do?

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter

    Naw, you shouldn't waste your time downloading and installing a program thats just going to take up space.

    The tweak MagicNakor posted works. Since its just a tweak, you don't have to download anything else.
