I always have my msn messenger on and the message keeps poping up. would running ad-aware, cleanup and cw shredder get rid of this or do I need to do something else? thanks...

Do you want MSN Messenger on? If you don't want to see the log-in, just shut MSN off. Is there a "properties" or "options" in MSN Messenger to set preferences or take it out of your start up menu?

Long ago, I killed MSN Mess. with this in the run line:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
so I can't check it.

I need to have my MSN Messenger on to communicate for work.
I checked the "options" tab but there's nothing which indicates that I can disable this pop up.
thanks!

Well I thik that there is only one program that gets rid of Messenger Spam effeciently and you can still use MSN with it.

I saw it on these forums a few months back does anyone remember the program that does this ? :tazz:

Sorry, I now suspect that this terrible pop up is the result of Microsoft Outlook.... not msn messenger. because I use both programs all the time, I thought it was msn. any suggestions on how to get rid of this?
