    When I fire-up my PC,I always get this pop-up window from "Y!Messenger"...."Update Available....Upgrade now-Y! Messenager has new features for entertainment,personalization and productivity".Then there's a Yes/No box at the bottom of the window.I get so tired having to click "No" every time I turn on the PC.I think I remember maybe ONE time it gave me the option to never show this message again so I check marked that box.Does any one know how I can some how block this window from appearing every time the PC is turned on? Thanks guys
