should help

I take it these are the grey boxes that pop up.

Go to Start/Program/Administrative Tools\component services. When the component services window opens, select services(local) and then look through the list in the right hand window for "messenger". Right click on messenger and select properties. Set the startup type to disabled.

Restart the machine and re-check the above to make sure it has been diasabled at startup.
