Hi Listers, Every now and again I get a messenger dialog box appearing on the screen. The box can display introductions from people or advertisements and even a warning that my system may be infected with a virus and go to a certain web site for more info. These box's are annoying because everything stops until you have OK'ed the message box. I don't use messenger of any description and I have sygate pro on my computer So how is the messenger box getting through, assuming they are coming in off the net as it only happens when I'm logged onto the net. Anyone any idea on how to stop this happening? Your input will be gratefully received. Running jaws 5.0.844 with XP home. Thanks in advance.
