My neighbour is receiving unsavoury messages from "ladies" wishing to share their life and pictures. These are windows that seem to automatically come up as soon as she logs onto the internet and appear to come through messenger.

How can she prevent these from happening please? They are causing some embarrassment

Download Stopthemessenger.exe (tiny file) from click here and run it.

If you have XP it can be disabled from services.msc (Start>Run> and key in services.msc

Scroll down to Messenger and disable.

There's also an Ad-aware plug-in from which you can Enable or Disable Messenger (if you have Ad-aware).
