Hi guys, for the past week I've been getting pop ups were ever I go all with the title save.
I've unistalled pop upstopper(which I've had no problems with untill now) and replaced it with pop up killer but still these pop ups get through.
Does anyone know of any utilites which specifically target these? or any configuration changes I can make?

This isn't spyware or adware. It's the messaging service built into Windows which is being used by spammers.(Windows Messenger - not .Net Messenger ).
To get rid of it,turn off the messaging service.
Windows 2000 and XP:- Go Start > Run > type in services.msc.Double-click on Messenger and in the Messenger Properties window, select Stop, then choose Disable as the Startup Type.Click OK.
Windows 95, 98, and ME:- Go to Control Panel and Add/Remove.Select Windows Setup.Select System Tools.Click Details.Uncheck WinPopUp.Click OK.
