Microsoft Messenger and unwanted messages

  [DELETED] 18:40 08 Oct 2003

I have read the previous posts and have carried out the options/preferences and have unticked all the relevant boxes. I have also unticked the program in accessories. I am still receiving messages. What have I not done? I am running XP.
