By john.cb1 ·
Can anyone tell me of any (free if posible) software i can use to stop the grey ad box coming up.

Is there a way that i can stop it in Nortons Internet Security, if so can you tell me how.

The "grey ad block" that appears is a feature of microsoft. It is a service called Messenger. It allows you or someone else to send messages in nice little grey windows...

Goto your start button --> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services

Go down the list until you see MESSENGER, double click on it, stop it, and set it to disabled. Never again will you see annoying spam messages with grey boxes.

Hope this helps you.

Good luck.
