Can anyone please tell me how to stop these extremly frustrating message pop ups?

Yes. Which type? Pop Ups or Messenger Services (grey) type?

Do a search and you'll see this has been asked 4 or 5 times in as many days...

PopUpStopper is free and it's good.

( Courtesy of click here )
This isn't spyware or adware. It's the messaging service built into Windows which is being used by spammers.(Windows Messenger - not .Net Messenger ).
To get rid of it,turn off the messaging service.
Windows 2000 and XP:- Go Start > Run > type in services.msc.Double-click on Messenger and in the Messenger Properties window, select Stop, then choose Disable as the Startup Type.Click OK.
Windows 95, 98, and ME:- Go to Control Panel and Add/Remove.Select Windows Setup.Select System Tools.Click Details.Uncheck WinPopUp.Click OK
