Janita spam

Has anyone found a way to get rid of janita 'pop up' sex line.

I tried a search for the name--no good
been through the registry----no good
Formatted the hard drive-- got it again.

If you formatted the hdd and it is back, it may be part of another prog that you have installed.

Have you tried any of the spyware removers - eg adaware?

The above thread looks like it holds the answer.

It's the Messenger Service that causes it, the reason it's back after you formatted is because you didn't disable the Messenger Service after you re-installed your OS. At that Link leo49 posted, checkout mine and VoG™'s links.

Thanks to all for your help, I have now disabled the messenger service, installed Zone Alarm & Ad-aware. Hoping that this is the end of the pest.

Also pestered by 'janita' and very appreciative that just a few minutes on this forum with you guys produces straightforward answers. Cheers.
