Lately, I've been plagued by pop-up messages (some from 'Messenger Service'), one inviting me to go to click here. What can I do to stop these annoying interruptions quickly and safely? As usual, idiot-proof help will be appreciated.
And thanks for help re. .pps files, newly resolved.

You can turn off windows Messenger but this can cause other problems. But, if you have a look at

click here

It will tell you to prevent NetBios and RCP traffic with your firewall for your Intenet connection.

I have sucessfully stopped it using McAfee Firewall.

don't get confused with MSN Messenger
