popups in XP

By sillybird ·
How do you stop the annoying pop ups that are on the screen when you don't log off? They have the light tan background, black lettering.

You mean messenger pop ups?

by TomSal In reply to popups in XP

If you are talk about the pop-ups made possible by microsoft's messenger service (no its not the same thing as the chat client featured on MSN) which can be EXTREMELY EASILY exploited by a 3rd party to send any message they want to your box.

Thenall you need to do is disable the messenger service, from the control panel. You'll need admin rights to do this.

If the messenger doesn't run - it can't be exploited.
