    i do have windows xp but the pop ups never showed up until the warez p2p. i've never used windows messenger. somebody told me its from warezp2p but he did tell me if there was a way to get rid of it.

    What you need now is a piece of software that will remove ""adware, malware,botware and the likes ".

    The first one you should have on your Pc is Ad-Aware SE .. this will remove some of the malignant cookies designed to report to advertisers your searching habits -- !

    You can get that here :-

    Next you should also get a piece of software that will detect any Bots you may gather while browsing ! -- Botes is short for Robots -- that is small script that will be send to your Pc and will usually insert a routine where your Pc will accept some form of control by a third party.

    You can get that here :-

    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

    and last you should have on your Pc a good antivirus that will detect virus infection when it comes -- !

    a Free one that has proven itself over the years as one with no frills and doing a great job cause it's updated almost daily is here :-

    After you've run Ad-Aware Se and Spybot Search&Destroy
    your Pc should be clean and no longer suffer from them obnoxious popups.

    Good Luck
