Messenger Service

How do you turn off Messenger Service when running WinXP Home? I keep having that damn thing pop-up on me and I thought it was a virus but I have all my win files updated as well as live update on NAV2002 and it only happens when using AOL dialup

Open the control panel
Then open the Admin Tools
Then Services

Now locate Messenger and right click and choose properties and first stop the service then in the Startup Type drop down choose disable. Hit apply and you are done.
