It has come to our attention that some advertisers are running intrusive advertisements using Windows Messenger popup boxes.

At first glance these ads look like any other warning or informational message that may popup on your PC, but in reality they are intended to trick the user into purchasing, downloading or installing unneeded goods. They can popup even when you’re not running any web, email or instant messaging program, which makes them increasingly difficult to spot.
What is the difference between Windows Messenger Popup ads and normal popup ads?
The main difference is that Windows Messenger popups are controlled by your operating system whereas normal popups are controlled by your web browser. The companies that are sending you Windows Messenger popups are exploiting a service provided in Windows NT, 2000 and XP that was designed to allow system administrators to send messages to users. For example, this message box may be used by your printer to inform you of the status of a print job. But the problem is that anybody can pop up these windows without authentication.

Please note, this has nothing to do with MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, or any other instant messaging program.

How can I get rid of these deceitful ads?
At Winferno Software we are especially opposed to this kind of intrusive marketing and have created StopMess, a simple to use download that blocks these ads with one click. Our concern about this latest form of SPAM (Windows Messenger Service popups) led us to develop additional software to prevent users like you from being tricked or hassled. Best of all, we’re offering this download Free of charge. (Limited time only)

Do you want to block ALL Popup ads?
Every copy of Secure IE comes with a single click Popup Blocker. This feature is provided via a conveniently located button at the top of the Secure IE screen and allows the user to block popups with one click! This is an original feature and has been included in every version of Secure IE.

Ok, I love the Popup Blocking feature, but what else does Secure IE 2003 offer?
