I'm trying to trade or in general just use my computer and those annoying windows messenger grey box pop ups appear constantly. I've been clicking them off but now I'm really getting pissed. Does anyone know how to rid my computer of this spam? I can't believe I'm the only one getting bothered by these pests, and I assume it will get worse!! I know I can (1) remove Windows Messenger but that involves playing with the registry and one misstep can affect your OS; (2) purchase a downloaded software for approx $25-50 from one of the spammers themselves, which on principal I refuse to do. There must be another way, please help!!!!!
