Hi lads. Been away from my puter over the hols but now when I got it switched on I keep getting pop ups. It says they are from Messenger Service. If I close them down a bigger one pops up. I cant get rid of them at all. Now I dont have msn messenger installed I removed it ages ago following the advice given in here. I also have a pop up blocker running but it still happens so I reckon its some kind of malicious code Ive picked up somehow when I downloaded my 100+ emails, mostly spam. How do I get rid of it please? Ive run adaware and spybot but its still there. Thanks Jayne.
Hi again VoG. In task manager I have found that csrss is the culprit. If I click end process it just starts a pop up attack again and I get the message THIS IS A CRITICAL SERVICE AND CANNOT BE SHUTDOWN. Under Applications it does say that messenger 'is running in background' but I thought I had got rid of MSN ages ago. I remember typing in a line of code that someone sent me with disable on the end to get rid of it. Or am I missing something here? Thanks Jayne.
