Hi there

I was just wondering is it possible to be able to use Net Send but without receiving these Net Send Spam from the net? Quite a while ago when I used to have my Messenger Service Enabled I often get these random ads or messages on my desktop. Since I've disabled it I can not longer use Net Send or any progs that does the same job as net send (obviously >_<). So I was wondering is there any way to have the net send feature enabled but not having to receive those ads spams?


Thanks

Sounds like you really want to install (turn on) a firewall to block incoming traffic from the internet (that is not initiated by you).

For Messenger this is port 135 but unless you are running a server you want to block all incoming pretty much (given how Windows loves to have many services listening for connections)...

Know any way I can do what you suggested with Zone Alarm?



Thanks
