KILL THOSE SPAM POPUPS!
I have been asked how to stop popups about regfixit,
(Many of )These come through windows messenger service
on windows versions previous to XP SP2.
I use Windows 2K so the first thing I do after a clean
install of Windows is to disable the messaging service so
I won't be prey of spammers any more, this will also help
users of XP previous to SP2 or anyone who needs to stop
these annoying messages..
The service has nothing to do with ICQ, Yahoo
messenger, MSN, and can be disabled without any ill
Disabling the service is fairly easy to do but the
easiest way is to download the below utility and run it.
