Windows XP, 2000, or NT messenger service.
Messenger spam(not MSN messenger).

Windows Messenger is a tool used by system administrators to send alerts.
Some people are abusing the system, sending unsolicited messages that are
the equivalent of spam. Here's how to turn off Windows Messenger so that
you don't receive this screen spam.

Right-click My Computer and choose Manage.
Go down to Services and Applications and choose Services.
Scroll down to Messenger and right-click the entry.
Choose Disable on the General tab.
Click OK.



P.S. .........don`t tell Johnwill ... :eek: :D
