In addition to Hella_tight's post, it may be the messenger service that is completely useless and abused by spammers.
You can disable it by hitting CTRL+R and in the run dialog type in "services.msc" without the quotes. You should see a window pop up. Go through the list and select Messenger...right click it and select properties. Where it shows "startup type: change it to disabled and where it shows service status hit the stop button. Should fix it!
