I keep getting pop ups that are titled messenger service. one tells me my computer may be infected with spyware. I have tried proprietry poopup stoppers but these dont seem too have any effect and appears to slow down my connection.
are there any ways to stop them in windows.I have win xp.
thanks

Open Control Panel then Admin Tools then services. Once open scroll down till you see Messenger highlight it then click Stop.. Close all down after that. Job Done
