Well, if it is/was ADWARE, Spyware or a Virus, turning off Windows Messenger doesn't FIX the problem, it just hides it.....
Oh and thanks to the people that did help.
It was ADWARE,
You're right, it was adware... it was a broadcast advertisement over an IP range going to all machines with Windows Messenger turned on. They're hocking their shit on gulible people who STILL haven't turned messenger off.
That message wouldn't have come up, had messenger been off. Not because it's "hiding" the problem, but because the "problem" isn't actually anything malicious on the system, it's a simple broadcast message to a range of IP addresses... had messenger been off, the "problem" would've been fixed, because they couldn't have broadcast the message to your ip address in the first place.
