Endad - Unsolicited and constant Pop-Up windows

Its driving me mad!!!! Whenever connected to the net (at home) I get an annoying pop-up window titled 'Messenger Alert' or something very similiar every 5 minutes or so. Its basically an ad for endad.com saying that by downloading their software you can eliminate their annoying pop-up messages. No way am I gonna do that!

I have run the latest build of Adaware with the latest signature file and I have run Spybot. Neither have succesfully removed this from my system.

Anyone else had this and successfully removed/stopped it?

Thanks for the reply.

Does the 'Stop Windows Messenger Spam ' freeware you mentioned, stop anything else other than these spam messeges? I dont want it to interfere with anything useful that I may be running.

Shouldnt my McAfee Firewall be able to prevent them?

Why and how am I getting targeted?

All the above will work fine, or you can just disable it from following the guide here. click here It will not affect any other applications you use and is not really required on a home PC. j.
