i have had these little [bleep]ers for like a year now. i downloaded new windows updates, and now, once every 60 mins i get the same minimized pop up (yet it is still floating on my screen, like i had just grabbed the edge of the window and shrunk it). i forgot whats its called... search.vbs.www i think. and with it, it always brings 2 pop ups. they are always a ad.oinadserver.com pop up and another one which always says it wants me to buy a spyware remover. i have 2 pop up blockers and they never get blocked.


please help...these pop ups CONSTANLY get me killed in WoW (i will be RIGHT in the middle of pvp and get the [bleep]ing pop ups....u have NO idea how much it pisses me off), and i'm at breaking point. a year of this bull [bleep] is long enough. =(

Hi Coryu!

Go to START-->RUN and type in [b]services.msc[/url]. Scrolls down the list and check and see if MESSENGER is STARTED. If it is, double click on it, change the STARTUP type to DISABLED and hit the STOP button. Then click APPLY and OK and exit.

If this service isn't turned on, then please visit the Malware Forum using the link in my signature and read what's in the START HERE link.
