Messenger service popup when surfing

  Sturmey 22:46 16 Jul 2003


This has happened twice now, when I'm surfing I get a pop up message not a pop window, it looks like a standard windows message saying something like visit click here, and in the taskbar it says "windows messenger service"

I've done a full virus scan with Norton and nothing came up, I'm using kerio firewall

Has anyone else has a similar thing happen, should I be concerned.

Good evening Djohn. I hope that you are well and that the FE does not take exception to this extraneous post!
