Do you have any protective software installed? Sounds like you need to turn off the messenger service.

It's built into Windows. You'll have to go into some system settings to turn it off. I think this is what you're talking about, take a look at the page I got for ya.

It's very important that you install third party software that can protect your computer.

Look up Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, Avast, and Zonealarm. Those are vital.
