I have a new puter, I'm running XP proffesional and I'm on cable. How do I block those annoying text pop-ups? You know, they are just text popup windows that read "messenger service" in the left corner. Almost all of them are trying to sell me some bullshit software (www.adblocker.com www.endads.com www.messagekiller.com and so on) to stop them but if they'd stop sending their spam I wouldn't need their software.
They also say I'm leaking out my IP address.
Please help the challenged.
