I have seen many messages explaining how to get rid of windows messenger, but this is a version that I haven't seem a comment on.

Every time in re-boot I see this message in a pop-up with a heading on top, saying

WINDOWS MESSENGER

A new version is available. You must install the newer version in order to continue. Would you like to do this now?
YES
NO
OK WHAT'S NEW

The last four options are in their own clickable boxes. Usually it takes two attempts in the NO box to make it go away.

I have gone into the windows messenger inside the system folder and tried to disable it, but I haven't done the proper thing as it keeps coming up.

Thanks for any help. Mark

I must say, this is very strange, have you tried disabling Windows Messenger in services.msc ?

I don't know what services.msc means. Can you elaborate? Thanks

I went to the services folder and found the messenger file, and disabled it and the message that I gave above still appears at startup.
