Hi F1
My computer has suddenly started getting messaging popups with spam in them when I connect to the internet
I have turned off the messaging service to stop them
Does anyone know if this is a viros/trojan?
thanks

So you're getting pop-ups from the messaging service even though you've disabled that service?

Turn off Netbios on your internet connection. Your should only need TCPIP.

You also turned of Messenger Service
Turn off other services too !

Also install a firewall.
