I'm wondering if someone has encountered the same problem. Although I've
scanned my system several times with different anti-virus programs that says
the system is clean I'm getting a pop-up window that states "From: Current
To: Error Errorin Windows Reigstry".. then towards the bottom it gives a web
site address at the bottom.

Has anyone else run into this problem and if so, how did you get rid of it?
As I said, I've scanned my system several times and it's coming up clean.

Thanks!

Make sure a firewall is turned on. And you need to disable or remove the
Messenger service.

[[If advertisements are opening on your computer in a window titled
Messenger Service, it may indicate that your system is not secure. You
should enable the Internet Connection Firewall and disable the Messenger
Service in Windows XP to help protect your computer from unwanted spam and
other potential threats.

The Messenger Service was originally designed for use by system
administrators to notify Windows users about their networks. However, some
advertisers have started using this service to send information via the
Internet, and these messages could be used maliciously to distribute a
virus.]]

[[To resolve this issue, install or turn on a firewall that blocks inbound
NetBIOS and UDP broadcast traffic. ]]
[[To work around this issue, turn off the Messenger service.]]
