    Unfortunately what your the victim of isnt something you've probably installed on your own. To get the messenger service pop-ups you've been getting , you must have been connected to the internet each time right? This is a form of spam you've been getting and it is much like the mass emails people get about "quick weight loss" or "free viagra".

    This is a relatively new form of spam because of the new commercially available program called DirectAdvertiser and Wonderpopup.

    To disable the messenger service on your computer follow these steps:

    Windows 2000:
    Click: Start/Settings/Control Panel
    Open: Administrative Tools
    Open: Services
    Open: 'Messenger' Service
    Click: Stop button
    Change 'Startup Type' to DISABLE
    Click OK to close everything

    Windows XP:
    Right-click: 'My Computer' icon and select 'Manager'
    Open: Services and Applications
    Open: Services
    Open: 'Messenger' Service
    Click: Stop button
    Change 'Startup Type' to DISABLE
    Click OK to close everything
