How to remove pop-up-Destroy

  ribo 14:11 05 Oct 2003

Hello again.
I keep getting a message popping up every few seconds Headed "Message Service" The message reads
"Message from destroads to computer for free indormation on how to stop popups from appearing on your computer just go th hhtp//www"

I have tried just closing this and I have tried clicking ok. Both these methods closes the box but it reappears again at regular intervals. I have deleted all muy temp int.files and all my cookies- no avail. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this? I am using XP (HE). I do use msm messenger quite often. Thanks. J

Messenger Service is a Service that Microsoft kindly left On as the default in XP. Its deigned to allow System Admins to send messages to people across company networks.

Scumbags now use it spam you with messages offering Russian Brides, Church Musical Instrument Improvement Pills and programs like those above for £30...

Both programs will do the same job and switch the service off.

No service = no ads....
