That's were I meant to go. It's been a while since I dealt with that problem.DrDoc said:I wouldnt use msconfig to disable services. I have talked to a few people and have found that it can somewhat fug up the system. Instead if you want to disable the messenger service (not msn messenger, you can still go to msconfig for that), go to control panel ->administrative tools ->services. Look for messenger, right click on it and select properties, and in the drop down menu select disable and apply the changes. That should solve the random pop ups that you might have been getting.
