Hello ljsmith82,

I believe this is a Messenger scam. :thumbsup:

Microsoft Windows, your operating system, would not refer you to anyone but Microsoft, and then it would be by using an error message.

Messenger (not to be confused with MSN Messenger, AOL IM or any other "internet messenger") was originally created for system administrators and users to communicate with other users on large networks. If your computer is not part of a network in a large organization you do not use it or need it to be running.

Spammers have figured out how to send spam with it taking advantage of exploits on your computer.
What you described in your first thread, this sounds like Windows Messenger Spam.

To block the spam, turn off Messenger Service.

To do that:
In Windows XP, click Start>>Control Panel
In Windows 2000, click Start>>Settings>>Control Panel

In both versions:
Double click Administrative Tools
Double click Services
Double click Messenger
Under Service Status, click Stop
In the box next to Startup Type, select Disabled
Click Apply>>OK

Alternatively, you can download a small program that will disable Messenger Service called Shoot The Messenger which is available at http://www.grc.com/freepopular.htm
Download and run "Shoot The Messenger"

Let me know if it works. :flowers:
