    you need to disable this in messenger.
    open Run and type services.msc into the box, scroll down and change to disabled

    If that fails try this:

    Click Start->Settings ->Control Panel
    Click Administrative Tools
    Click Services
    Double click Services Scroll
    down and highlight "Messenger"
    Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.
    Click the STOP button.
    Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar
    Click OK

    Thank you guys! When I play games on WarCraft III, it gets really annoying when there is a pop-up every 5 minutes.
