Re: Pop-Up's with blocker running
Neodude has the right idea. You might also want to see if the Messenger service is disabled. Click on Start > Run. In the Open box, type in services.msc. the click OK. In the next window, scroll down to Messenger, if it's running, right click and select properties. There you can stop the service and then disable it.
bruinator, not a good solution. Suggesting using a different browser doesn't help with his current problem.
