I was on this forum not long ago asking about the Microsoft Anti-spyware program. Despite having disabled messenger from startup, the MSAS program appears on my desktop as a pop-up (approximately every 60 seconds) telling me the following:
"An application change has been allowed. Microsoft anti-spyware has allowed the startup program Messenger by Microsoft Corp. to be installed in your startup registry. Name: Messenger. File path: c:/programfiles/messenger/msmsgs.exe. This program is known to be spyware free."
Someone on this forum kindly advised me to try "shoot the messenger." I downloaded that program and ran it. The pop-up is still there every 60 seconds. I have winpatrol, and from what I can tell, the messenger is disabled. So, I do not understand the continued popup message. I also click on the information tab and MSAS tells me "no information currently available." I want to get rid of the constant pop-up message. Can someone help on this one? MUCH APPRECIATED.
