You need to disable the Messenger Servise and MSN Messenger... click here Stop Windows Messenger Spam - will fix this problem.

But, do you need to install a firewall?LOL

Zone Alarm stops these by default I think.

Also, Steve Gibson's Shoot The Messenger click here

And give his Shields Up! a spin, see how open you are to hackers etc. Then go to click here and get Zone Alarm Free

There is a possibilty that you already have a firewall, but one that leaves the port open for Network Messages. As far as I know ZA does stop these messages.
