Pop-Ups and Messenger

I keep getting pop-ups warning me that my system is open to attack and inviting me to contact a site (eg MessengerBuster.com) to download a program to prevent it. Is this legitimate, or is it a "cunning plan" to make contact with me?

If these are Messenger service pop-ups click here

If you use Messenger, then install a firewall such as Agnitum Outpost or ZoneAlarm. These can be set to block the annoying Messenger pop-ups

Yes, it is a cunning plan to try and get you to go to their links.
