Like some help to stop Windows Messenging trying to access various ports (eg 192.168.3. xxx port 1900) on our P4 XP Pro with SP1 and Jetstream connection - Zone Alarm keeps putting up warning screens that is it trying to access 'Trusted Zone' or 'Access the Internet' - click deny or accept and another will pop with another IP address?

Do a search on msmsgs.exe in this forum. It was discussed a little while back and solutions given.

I thought it was "Microsoft Messenger" (Not Windows Messenger- That's an IM client and should access the internet). It should never access the internet, as Spammers have figured out how to use it to send ads to you. Service Pack 2 was supposed to disable it.
