Click Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Administrative Tools->Services Scroll down and highlight "Messenger" Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties. Click the STOP from the drop down barselect Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar Click OK
As madboy33©® says but I found this did not stop them completing because Messenger was still loading at startup. So also:click Start, click Run, type msconfig, click ok.Click Startup tab and uncheck Messenger. eg. msmsgs. Click Apply, then ok.Reboot. You will probably get if you use Win XP Home a box with message about 'select startup'. Ignore this simply check the box left bottom corner.Messenger will not now start on bootup - no more Messenger popups.I also set my firewall to block Messenger's access to Internet - just incase it somehow got started.
msmsgs in msconfig is the msn messenger chat program.fire1 means the messenger service in windows services.not to be confused,they are two completely different things.VoG™ or madboy33©®`s advice should sort it for you fire1.
I had problems with both Windows Messenger & MSN Messenger hence my posting. Didn't make myself clear, sorry.
a big thank you to all who helpedchris
