Help me stop this popup
    #2408172 - 03/08/04 07:10 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Someone please help.  Every few minutes this thing pops up that says:

Message from MSOFT to WINDO

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-043

Buffer Overrun in Messenger Service Could Allow Code Execution (828035)

Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows NT Workstation
Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0
Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Windows Win98
Microsoft Windows Server 2003

Non Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows Millenium Edition

Your system is affected, download the patch from the address below!  FIRST TYPE THE URL BELOW INTO YOUR INTERNET BROWSER, THEN CLICK 'OK'

www.win-patch.com




:mad:

This is such a fucking scam.  They expect me to pay $20 so I don't have to see that message every few minutes?!  I tried running Adaware but that didn't work.  Any suggestions anyone?

Sounds like it might be Windows Messenger spam. If it opens in a grey window titled Windows Messenger, it is.
To disable:

Windows 2000:

* Click: Start/Settings/Control Panel
* Open: Administrative Tools
* Open: Services
* Open: 'Messenger' Service
* Click: Stop button
* Change 'Startup Type' to DISABLE
* Click OK to close everything

Windows XP:

* Right-click: 'My Computer' icon and select 'Manager'
* Open: Services and Applications
* Open: Services
* Open: 'Messenger' Service
* Click: Stop button
* Change 'Startup Type' to DISABLE
* Click OK to close everything
