the pop-up you are getting is a Microsoft Messenger window. As I said in my previous post: Disable MS Messenger.

Find 'Services' on your system. Highlight the 'Messenger' service, right-click for 'Properties', and in 'Properties', disable the Messenger service.
Problem solved. I just recently did this with my computer, to resolve the Messenger service popups.

Go to www.webattack.com and look under freeware. LOts of goodies. You can also get Spybot there which automatically blocks spyware when configured.

Panicware's pop-up stopper seems to be the best of all I tried. The free version is more than adequate.

Microsoft included a nice little network utlity called netsend it uses an Ip address, which each computer connected to the internet has. The newest form of spam looks for these computers that have no protection and simply sends a netsend ip then msg and whala you have that annoyin popup.

Look at the message it says messenger service in the title bar.

Just disable it and say begone annoying popup's.
