Hi

I've just installed win 2000 on my computer and I started getting pop ups from "messenger services" alerting me on some kind of danger and asking to make a registry scan.
These pop ups are very annoying and even after I deleted the services.exe file, it constantly reappears and i don't know what to do...

Please help

Thanks

1. Click on Start > Run and type: services.msc
2. Press "OK" or "Enter".
3. Scroll-down to "Messenger" and double-click it.
4. In the next window that opens, click the "Stop" button
5. Click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to "Disabled".
6. Press "OK"

Note: services.exe is a legit Microsoft file that manages the operation of starting and stopping services. It also deals with the automatic starting of services during the boot-up and the stopping of services during shut-down. This file is important for the stable and secure running of your computer.

There are viruses and trojans that use the same name as services.exe. In most cases, the bogus services.exe might be present in your Windows folder, and added to the RUN keys so that the Malware loads at every startup.
