Sounds like Messenger Spam.  Have you got it running?  I think you can block all users not on your list in the Options.

The other one to check is the messenger service under XP.

Start->run
SERVICES.MSC
Find, stop and then disable the messenger service
hey promised the earth! Then delivered mud.
Technically it did meet the spec.

1. Click Start, Control Panel, and open the "Administrative Tools".

2. Within the Administrative Tools window open "Services".

3. Locate "Messenger" and double click the icon to open "Messenger Properties"

4. Within the "Messenger Properties" set the "Startup Type" to disabled and click the "Stop" button.

5. Click the "Apply" button and close out of all windows.

Hope that sorts it for you.   :)
