hey,

i keep getting errors from "messenger service" saying that my registry is corrupt. and to visit a number of websites to download programs. but the programs i have to pay for. i've reinstalled windows xp (which im on) but the errors seem to still some up. I also have at least 4 "svchost.exe" processes running in my tasks.

here is what one of these typical error messages look like.
