Since upgrading to AOL 8 I just keep getting messages to buy popup killers in grey dialog boxes. It may be by chance it started with the new AOL 8 please can anybody help how to remove this stupid thing from happening.I am running XP & do have popup killers loaded but they still come up.

There is a small download called 'shootthemessenger' which will probably do just what you want. Have a look at: click here

first thing you must do is enable xp firewall
secong go to control panel-administrator tools-services
there you will see a list of whats running
ONLY GOTO MESSENGER DOUBBLE CLICK THE ENDof the line where it says (AUTOMATIC) WHEN WINDOW POPSUP CLICK STOP AND THEN ALTER HOW IT LOADS TO DISABLE
on a brand new install of xp you will get popoups just by updating through microsoft updates
