    Messenger Service (6)

    I keep getting on Messenger Service this warning "Message from ALERT SERVICE to you on 8/22/2003 6:47
    WANT TO STOP ALL THESE MESSENGER POPUPS?
    Go to www.byebyeads.com to stop them immediately and protect yourself
    www.byeyeada.com"
    I have removed MS messenger service from XP Pro but still get this pop up
    I don't feel safe going to a site I do not know
    Any one know who/what this is about?

    Deep in the recesses of XP are a number of Messenger dialogues - Control Panel|Admin Tools|Services - you have to deal with in order to REALLY turn off the Messenger Service. HTH
