Messenger pop ups

  cheeky 13:25 07 Jul 2003

Hi Group,

recently I keep gettin these little pop ups that look like messenger in an small grey window every time I connect to the net. Is this a virus I have now got or just an annoying thing that I can't stop. Its really bugging me and keeps trying to get me to follow it's lin ks so that I can remove it.

It happens even when explorer or Outlook isn't open and running. please help as it's driving me mad.!!

Many Thanks
