Hi,

This usually has to do with Instant messenger.  Goto add remove programs, windows components and deselect MSN and Messenger.  Reboot your system and install the new version of messenger or just leave it off if you are not using it.  I would leave it off to ensure that the messages do not return.

Some say to clear this is to reboot, go into safe mode, exit safe mode and then return to normal operation.  This supposedly fixes the issue.

If nothing else seems to work then have your XP SP2 CD on hand and from a command prompt run sfc /scannow

Follow this guide.
