Any chance of letting us know what the spyware is or the url of the site you are being directed to? Might shed some light.

You need to disable the windows messenger service to stop those annoying pop-ups.

click here for a useful tool that will do that for you.

unless I have misunderstood this request please do not you or anyone ask for a url to be posted to a suspect site unless the site details are
s p a c e d o u t to prevent it appearing as a click here and the unsuspecting clicking on it and having their machines similarly infected

(and, if memory serves, Windows Messenger service is riddled with annoying pop ups,(and probably more, ); I am on MSN messenger which is far more "friendly"::))) )

Stacky's link takes you to the download page for PAL Spyware Remover which features on the rogue antispyware listing at Spyware Warrior click here

If you are not getting other symptoms of malware infection and all the scans you have done are negative then the chances are that it is just the annoying messenger service ads that are afflicting your pc.Deal with that as in my above link and also run Ccleaner to remove temporary files and other junk from your pc click here and you should be ok.

I did not mean for him to post the link just to give the name of the site or programme. I fully understand what you mean though and in future will specify more clearly when posting.
