Hi can any one please tell me if there is any way to stop those stupid messenger service messages popping up.

click here and download the small program, run and it will disable the messenger for you. this is just a different approach to VoG's excellent advice

also browse the GRC website for other useful utilities.

definitely take a look at Unplug and play, and also DCombobulate me....

you dont have to use them but they raise some interesting points

i reckon it is much easier to disable it via add remove programs
