I keep geting 'messenger service' pop-ups inviting me to log onto a website linked to a webcam. How do I stop this?

If you post how it was resolved then it may help others. If you're running XP (and possible some other OS's) there's an exploit that allows people to send you pop-ups I think you can get round it by disabling Windows Messenger.
