I am continualy pestered by adverts from Janita and the like inviting me to visit their website and these adverts are becoming a pain in the proverbal. I have never replied to any of them but every time I go on line I get 2 or 3 a session. Can anyone tell me how they get to me and how I can stop them.

click here If it's the windows messenger service that is causing the problem, then no need to download any program. Just turn off the service.

It is intended mainly for internal networking of PC's, but unfortunately people out on the web found a more insidious use for it. Turning it off will not effect any of your programs, just stops the pop-up nasties. Regards. j.
