Default Question about XP and Messenger Service.

I keep getting there pop up adds, it is called Messenger Service(I nice addons by Microsoft). Is there anyway to get rid of these annoying pop ups? I attached an image to show you what it looks like so you know which pop ups I mean.

go to admin tools find services once it is open go to Messenger(not msn) right click on it select properties then set it to disabled
that will kill it
