  1. i updated both and both come up with zero hits fixing this, plus i just reformatted my comp , fuck, fuckin bro looking at porn site

    the pop up isnt like a web browser popup its like a windows type popup.

    at the top it says Messenger Service

    the message in the box says :

    Message from SYSTEM to ALERT on 2/25/06 8:26:49 AM
    STOP! WINDOWS REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.
    Windows has found CRITICAL SYSTEM ERRORS.
    Run Registry Repair from: http://www.fixwin32.com
    FAILURE TO ACT NOW MAY LEAD TO DATA LOSS AND CORRUPTION!

    and then theres an ok button at the bottom

    any ideas ?? this shit is annoying. thanks guys

    Its messenger spam. Are you seriously running without a firewall? Get a router or turn on the Windows firewall ASAP. You can disable the Messenger Service (Control Panel, Admin tools, Services) but that's the least of your problems if you're on the Internet without a firewall.

    posting 2 threads doesn't help either, like mdaniel said, turn off the messenger service.
    also, upgrade your windows system, looks like you haven't run windows update in a while if you get this kind of problem
