btw you can get firewalls that block popups and they're useful too. i have norton personal firewall and blocks popups and adverts.

If you use Google a lot you could try the Google Toolbar. click here
It has a built in pop up stopper and is easy to use.

But this is Windows Messenger Service popups - different type of pop up i don't think Google Bar can block and neither could my firewall!

Steve Gibson has a small utility on his website click here for this purpose but, at present, you can't download it for some reason.

Stop Windows Messenger Spam is only a few Kb and IS available to download at present, and its free too.
