    The popup is bogus. Don't install that software. It will most likely make
    things worse for you.

    What you DO want to do is find out where that popup is coming from. Start
    with these SAFE and proven tools:

    Spybot Search & Destroy

    Ad-Aware SE


    (all three of the above can be downloaded from

    Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta for XP



    Download each, update it, run it. Update and run each one about once a week,
    just like your anti-virus software (you *do* have anti-virus software
    installed and updated, don't you?)

    If those do not find/fix the problem, download HijackThis, run it, and post
    the log here for someone to review.

    These popup windows are due to Windows Messenger Service spam.

    If using Windows XP select Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and
    Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Services -> scroll down and
    highlight 'Messenger' -> right-click the highlighted line and choose
    Properties -> click Stop button -> select Disable in the Startup Type
    scroll bar -> finally click OK.

    For illustrated step-by-step instructions see 'Stop Messenger Spam:
    Windows XP Users':

    or download Stop Messenger Spam (Windows, freeware):

    Windows Messenger Service windows may appear when using Windows NT,
    2000, or XP online. They have nothing to do with the similarly named
    MSN Messenger chat program or with your web browser (so any popup
    stopper option has no effect).
    Windows Messenger Service was designed to enable messages to be sent
    over a Local Area Network (LAN). Typically, a system administrator
    might use it to notify users that the server is about to be shut down.
    Because it uses the same TCP/IP communication standard as the
    Internet, such messages can also be sent over the Internet. Windows XP
    ships with Messenger Service turned on by default and this blunder has
    been exploited by spammers to pump out spam to every enabled system
    they can find. Some even advertise programs to stop it -- a scam, as
    no software is needed to turn the service off.

    You don't need that software. It's not going to fix your problem. That's not
    what it was written for.

    See the post from unluckylanding - that could be what you're dealing with.

    You should always be carefull with these scams,letting these tinker with the
    registry is dodgy.You should remove the program they have supplied you,every
