What OS?
If XP, have you disabled Messenger Service (this isn't MSN Messenger)?

To Turn Off Messenger In XP Home:

Click "START"

Click "Control Panel"

Click "Performance and Maintenance"

Click "Administrative Tools"

Double-click "Services"

Scroll to "Messenger service", and double-click it.

Select STOP service

In the Startup drop down box, select "Disabled".

Also do this for:

Alerter, SSDP Discovery service, Telnet, and Universal Plug & Play (not Plug & Play)

Now "OK" your way out.
