  1. I constantly receive error messages while online, never offline. Always telling me to go to some update website. Here is one example:

    Window is labeled as Messenger Service

    Message from Windows Update to user on 9/27/2005

    Urgent notice from msoft

    Buffer overflow in Messenger Service Causes unexpected computer shutdown, virus infection and remote code execution

    Affected Software:

    All versions of windows except Millenium Edition

    Your system is affected, download the patch from the address below! First type the url below into your internet browser, then click 'ok'

    www.updatewindows.org


    I receive different variations of this message, with different urls. I have run spybot, ewido, norton, and ad-aware se.

    Every once in a while, the message says their was an error with the Remote procedure call, then shuts the computer down. I gots no clue what to do.......any help would be terriffic.

    80 gig hd
