    Hi, I'm back again.....
    Several weeks ago I started getting "Messenger Service" popups on my desktop. The box is grey with a blue stip at the top advertising anything from a new security protocal from Microsoft to breast enhancement to penis enlargement. At that time I ran H/T, Ad-Aware and Spybot search, killed everything bad, restarted and no more pop ups.
    Two days ago they started again and nothing I've done since has removed them. I haven't been to warez/porn sites. The only thing I can think of is Kazaa but I have used Kazaa for over a year now with no problems like this in the past.
    The current message up is an ad from www.BIGBONER.BIZ trying to sell me Yohimbe Free Advanced Formula 9.0. (I wonder what was wrong with 8.0?)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Jarkeld_ia
