Angry Blocking a certain type of spam?

Hi
I get tons of one type of spam...looks like a colored rectangle with writing inside and a bunch of crap written beneath it..Is there a blocker out that catches this type of spam?

Tom

Hmm, i was gonna say that it might be messenger service, but that should be disabled in SP2. You can check anyway by going to control panel > admin tools > services > look for messenger then right click it and disable it. And dont worry its not MSN messenger.

Download hijackthis aswell and post the log you get.
