Windows Messenger (please help)

I have just bought a new PC and although Windows XP is taking some getting used to I am doing quite well- appart from one thing, "Windows Messenger" Without fail, every two hours I am getting pestered with messages offering me everything from cheap viagra and anti vrus software to software that will stop me getting spam! I have tried everything I know to try and stop this but nothing will work. Please help!!

Are the windows like proper windows message boxes but in the old style windows classic. If there are i only ever get those when myfirewall is switched off. Have you got the windows firewall on? You could use ZoneAlarm which is a god free firewall.
