    If you have XP, click on the following link. In the dialogue box click 'open'. Then type in the message in the command prompt thingy:

    net stop messenger

    For Windows XP only

    Unfortunatly, you have to enter this in every time to stop the messages, but it does work!

    Join me in the chat im bored there.

    i dont understand what u're getting at here. is this to block those anoying popups u get in a windows messenger box??

    if so ..all u need to do is go to network places, network connections, right click ur network connection e.g. "ntl" then put firewall on.

    if ur talkin bout sommat else then pretend this post never existed.

    This method is a lot simpler

    I've stopped all msn pop-ups by unclicking a box and now never have to worry about it but I can't remember which box I clicked! Perhaps if you try msconfig on 'run' you get that option on XP as that is what I may have done.

    but surely its much better haveing a firewall, especially if u have a broadband connection. and u only need to activate firewall once.

    Well some of us don't know how to put up firewalls.

    I've checked and what I did was click on 'run', type in msconfig, click ok and you get box for system configuration. Go to tab for 'service' and scroll down and unclick box for messenger. Hey presto no more pop-ups ever!

    Open a text file

    type "net stop messenger"

    save it as "something.bat"

    Copy and paste it to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

    Then it will load itself every time windows starts.

    Very clever, but my way is fun.

    that does work however it starts each time as a system service to shut this down, you want to go into control panel, administrative tools, services and right click on messenger and disable it! sorted in one.

    and get zone alarm, its vital

    That's exactly what I said - get to services and remove tick from messenger! Mine is on Windows XP though so guess you might have to use different route if you're not on XP.

    Pop up adverts are not random - they relate to the subject matter of the website you are visiting at the time. Stop surfing on porno sites and that will stop these pop-ups that you say you are sick of!!

    I don't! I get those pop ups when Im on Uk-Net!!!
