KILL THOSE SPAM POPUPS!

----------

I have been asked how to stop popups about regfixit, regcleanup etc.

(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 effects.

Disabling the service is fairly easy to do but the easiest way is to download the below utility and run it.
