Spam & Spim

From the folks who brought you spam, now comes a faster, even more annoying alternative: Spim. Spim is the new name for unsolicited instant messages. (Get it, SpIM?) You can go a long way towards preventing Spim by blocking all messages that don't come from people on your contact list.

If advertisements are opening in your computer in a window titled Messenger Service, this is also Spim, but not from Windows Messenger. Read Disabling Messenger Service in XP to find out how to get rid of this problem.

SPIM - Interesting Name.

We have to note that Messenger Service in Windows XP is not related to instant messaging programs such as Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger.
