Looks like spyware. Have you tried Ad-Aware?
Those are spoof messages about the registry.Found other's with the same problem.I hope you didn't click on the link.When you have your windows messenger running it allows an open port for this intrusion.http://forums.thatcomputerguy.us/ind...=0&#entry97971
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Yep check for spyware/adware.... definitely related to Messenger service (RIK), not the windows messenger or MSN messenger but the internal windows messaging service... used for domain and network printing etc
But for home use, you can safely disable the service by using the tool Rik gave the link too, (this service is disabled by default in SP2)

ad-aware doesnt detect anything. disabled messenger with shoot the messenger. thanks.
You can easilly disable this service my running services.msc from the run command on the task bar, then locate the messenger service and right click on it then click disable, note you need admin rights to do this.
Despite disabling messenger service the fact that you got this indicates that your firewall is either not working or misconfigured as it should prevent this either via anti-spoofing or RPC filtering. Messenger spam uses port 135 (although it can use 139) and your firewall should be filtering it - it's a good way to find out if your firewall is crap.
I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
They are not spyware. Its the messenger service...
