I dunnow if this applies to your situation, but if the problem is those grey pop-ups you get while at HyperLobby, go to well, at least in XP Homely Edition go to Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services and look for something called "messenger" Turn it off and then right click it and under properties disable it. It has nothing to do with MSN messenger.

go here, www.download.com (http://www.download.com)

get adaware 6 its a free spyware remover

run adaware do the update to get the most current version and your popups will be gone and all spyware from your pc which is slowing down your connection


for winupdate.net look for a program called Hijackthis it finds the hardcore ie programs that adaware does not pickup
