something that needs to stop

since getting Windows XP I've been receiving tons of stupid messages from spammers.
is there any free way of stopping this?

no, I don't want cool shades

They're offering you cool shades?

All they ever do is ask me if I want a larger penis.

Enhanced pleasure DOES sound nice though...

They are email messages too, Bassy. Oh, and if you see any for brain enlargement...yeah...that might be worth investigating.

I you!

i started a thread just like this, they arent like normal pop ups, they are like the grey boxes you need to push ok to get rid of

the people told me how to stop it, let me see if i can remember

ok, right click on my computer, go to manage, click on services and applications, click on services, then click on messenger, and then select "stop this" and that should work

I have a feeling you are referring to this.
