pop-up messages

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.

I have sucessfully stopped it using McAfee Firewall.

don't get confused with MSN Messenger
