I read this in the Daily Telegraphs Connected supplement.

Windows Messenger in XP

By default it is switched on, to disable it go to Run on the Start menu, type 'services.msc', double click the Messenger entry, click the Stop button and on the Startup Type drop-down menu select Disabled. Click OK, close the windows and you should see no more of this pest.
