    Hi Devin84, ;)

    Sounds like you'll need a trip to the Spyware/Hijack Forum & post a log ... you've posted a log before so I omitted the How to ... Link.

    Best Wishes, ;)

    Hi,

    Those are messenger service pop ups.

    Here's how to disable the service and the pop ups.

    Windows 2000
    1.Click Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Administrative Tools->Services
    2.Scroll down and highlight "Messenger"
    3.Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.
    4.Click the STOP button.
    5.Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar
    6.Click OK


    Windows XP Home
    1.Click Start->Settings ->Control Panel
    2.Click Performance and Maintenance
    3.Click Administrative Tools
    4.Double click Services Scroll
    5.down and highlight "Messenger"
    6.Right-click the highlighted line and choose Properties.
    7.Click the STOP button.
    8.Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar
    9.Click OK

    But you can still post a Hijackthis log to get rid of other nasties you might have.
