Aftr a hard disc replacement I am in the process of reinstlling all my programs and keep getting popups from 'Messenger Service' saying something like:Message from spyware advisory service to user: Your computer may be infected with unauthorised spyware programs................ go to spw9c.com or click hereI am treating these as a type of virus. Am I correct in treating these as a type of virus and closing the windows?Another one says: Message from Microsoft Networks to Windows User. Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-043Buffer Overrun in Messenger Service Could allow X code Execution (828035). Your system is affected. Download the patch from the address below! click here.Is this a genuine microsoft message as it does not give the microsoft web address?I believe there is a freeware program to avoid these popups? Can anyone help? I am getting a lot from 'Eva' and her friends!Many thanks.Sheila
Go to control panel - admin tools - open. Services - open. Scroll through to 'messenger' click on it once - Right click and select properties 'start type' to disable - click OK - restart machine.Mike
You need stopthemessenger.exe from click here or similar website.
Its a scam to get you to buy a fix that has been offered for free above. Its not from MS - it tries to look like it is but its not.
Many thanks, everyone.
You don't need to restart your system after resetting Services configuration.
