Do these pop up in a box labeled Messenger.
If so, try disabling Windows Messenger Service (this has noting to do with MSN Messenger).

Click Start / Settings / Control Panel
Click "Performance and Maintenance".
Click "Administrative Tools".
Double click 'Services".
Scroll down and highlight "Messenger".
Right-click the highlighted line and choose "Properties".
Click the "STOP" button.
Select "Disable" or "Manual" in the "Startup Type" scroll bar.
Click "OK".

If it's not in a box labeled "Messenger", please provide more information about your problem.
What is your Operating System (XP Home, XP Pro, etc., ....)?
Have you updated, and run your antivirus?
What was the exact error message?

In addition to Spybot and Ad-aware, I suggest you also install these security programs:
aČ free
ewido security suite

These 2, will help prevent spyware/malware from being installed in the first place:
Spywareblaster
SpywareGuard

Download these programs, update them, and then run them.
These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Sounds like a smitfraud sort of thing.

Do the pop-ups look anything like this:
