XP popups...any ideas?

  Fateful Shadow 17:27 16 May 2003

I have recently got an XP laptop and I was wondering whether anybody knew how to get rid of the annoying popups.

In more detail, they occur usually in the middle of the screen and tell you to visit a website, e.g. click here and then purchase software to eliminate the popups.

It says that you don't need to be connected to the internet for this to happen, but I think something maybe happening between Windows Messenger and Windows XP.

Any help would be greatly appretiated!
