    Is there a way I can disable the windows messaging people are using to send me pop up adds. I'm getting the same one about every 5 minutes. I ran Ad-aware, but no use. I'm still getting them

    If you mean the pop-up ads that say "Windows Messenger Service" on the title bar, here's a fix (this is only for Windows XP that I know of, but I'm sure you could figure it out for other OSes using this info):

    Go to start/run
    Type msconfig and press enter
    Go to the Services tab
    Look for the "Messenger" service and uncheck the box next to it.
    That should do the trick (hopefully). /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
