Hi guys,
I am having a problem with messenger service popups. I have resolved it once before, but I have just formated and reinstalled windows XP, and now I cannot remember how you stop these popups!
Any help would be appreciated as I cannot let me son on the net until these popups stop.

Another way to close the door on some of the vunerabilities used is by running Shoot the Messenger, DCOMbobulator, and UnPlug n' Pray from Gibson Research (about mid-page). In your case, Shoot the Messenger is the most important, but I would run all three.
