    Dave;
    No need to pay for the fix.
    For Messenger Service ads:
    You need to install or enable a firewall:
    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;Q330904&[/url]
    Disabling Messenger Service can be a good idea, but it does not solve
    the real problem.
    The ads are not the real problem, the ads are only a symptom.
    The real problem is open ports that allow unwanted traffic into the
    computer.
    Disabling Messenger does nothing for the open ports.
    The firewall controls the traffic.

    Internet Connection Firewall will not work if you have AOL.
    AOL is not compatible with Windows XP Internet Connection Firewall
    (ICF)
    If you have AOL, you should contact AOL and/or get a 3rd party
    firewall.

    Disable Messenger Service:
    Start/Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, click Services.
    Go down to "Messenger".
    Right click "Messenger" and select Properties.
    Then under Start-up select DISABLE
    Click OK and follow prompts

    Check this link:

    Run Ad-Aware (free version) or Spybot to check for spyware:

    Or

    For internet pop-ups, try one of these:
