(These instructions are for Windows 2000/XP)
1. Click 'Start' button
2. Right click 'My Computer'
3. Choose 'Manage' from Menu
4. Left column highlight 'Services and Applications'
5. Right column double click on 'Services'
6. Double click on service called 'Messenger'
7. Click 'Stop' button to stop service
8. Change the 'Startup Type' to 'Manual'
9. Click 'Apply'
10. Click 'OK'
11. Close 'Computer Management'

That stopped the popups on our computer for good. Wink
