They also state that a fix to my "problem" is located at a particular web address. The following is an example: ______________________________________________________ Messenger Service Message from SYSTEM to ALERT on 7/21/2005 10:12:35 PM REGISTRY ERROR Your system has encountered an Internal Error Vital information in the registry is corrupt This may result in a system crash URGENT: A IMMEDIATE REGISTRY SYSTEM SCAN IS RECOMMENDED visit www.fixyourreg.com to repair OK _________________________________________________________ All the pop up are messages of this general type they indicate something is wrong with my system and then say that a fix is available at a certain website. When I click on the "OK" at the end the pop-up closes, I am not redirected to any site. These Pop-ups occur generally once every 2-5 minutes everytime I am surfing or just reading email. Reproducible: Always
Those messages aren't caused by Firefox, they are caused by the Windows Messenger service. You can find out how to disable it at: http://www.itc.virginia.edu/desktop/docs/messagepopup/
