Howdy:

Just disable the Messenger Service..

Instructions HERE or HERE !!

Try the first link first!!

Also, do NOT double post your problem.. If a Mod feels you would be better served in a different forum, they will move it !!!

It's the Windows Messenger Service - a legitimate Windows program.. However, some unscrupulous people have found a way to manipulate it!!
