Can somebody please offer me salvation?
I keep getting those annoying grey pop-ups which advertise the usual spam, they dont do any harm but are extremely annoying when your busy with something else.

Does anyone know how I can banish these demons?
Or at the very least cut down the number I recieve?

Cheers

if you have xp

goto control panel, administrative tools, services and scroll down to messenger and put the startup type to disabled

change messenger service.

I use mIRC or occasionally ICQ (for file sending as I am behind a router).

Outlook and MS messenger are disabled on my home PC (XP Pro). In fact, the only MS program I use (apart from windows) is IE6.

At work I use Outlook Express as it's the only program my Boss can use.
