Messenger Service

When on line a small window keeps poping onto my screen, with the following text:
Message from SYSTEM to ALERT on (date) (time)

Microsoft Windows has encounted an Internal Error
Your windows registry is corrupted.
Microsoft recommends a complete system scan.
Vist this website to repair.

I have ignored all these messages.

Is it just a harmless ad, or is it something evil?

It looks harmless but is probably an ad as you suggest.Run adaware or the new microsoft anti spyware.

Marketing ploy, I'm sure but run Regscrub anyhow
