Try the Microsoft Antispyware tool - disconnect from the net while the tool is scanning/cleaning.
click here

Make sure your antivirus software is up to date, run a complete scan (again, while offline).

Get a good firewall (check out the site above) if you dont have one already, if you are using the standard Windows XP one it only checks incoming traffic.

Turn off the Windows Messenger Service.

Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Services.

Find Messenger in the list, right click it with your mouse and select Properties.

Set Startup Type to Disabled.

Click Apply, click OK.

Hopefully the messages will stop.
