i just deleted the windows messenger files on my computer\nwhich is running xp in an effort to keep ad messages from\npopping up. they say message to unsafe user: you are open\nto attack. go to messagedestroyer.com to stop this opening.\nI know there must be a way i can stop this without\npurchasing someones software. and now that i dont have\nmicrosoft messenger anymore i still get the popups about\nmessenger directing me to the websites. also any good\nideas about regular pop up ads?\nthanks for any help.
