Question messenger spam/ME

I have been told that, unlike Win2000/XP etc, I cannot turn off messenger in Windows ME to stop the latest spam pop-ups from messenger. Anyone out there know any different?

Thanks, Microbell, but been there, tried to do that. The screenshots bear little resemblance to what is on my system, so I cannot do what they instruct! All I can find on mine is something called 'Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter'.
When I tried to e-mail them, it was returned as unknown! Eeek!

Hmm, I looked at that page, and if you are using ME, those screens are exactly the same. easier way to get to the network properties is to right-click on My Network Places and left click on properties.
