How to block messenger ads?
When you are connected to the Internet, a new
window may open on your computer screen containing
an advertisement. The windows are labeled Messenger
Service in the title bar. However, these messages,
which are sometimes called "messenger spam,"
are not related to Windows Messenger, MSN®
Messenger or such instant messaging services.
These advertisements are sent via the Messenger
Service, which is designed for use by system
administrators in Windows server-client networks.
System administrators use the messenger service
to send messages that notify you of conditions
on or give status about your network. However,
some advertisers have started using this service
to send their information via the Internet.
Disabling your messenger service will block
the messenger pop-up advertisement.
