    Just stop the service called messenger or block port 139.
    .sig - There never was a .sig?
    I own a Schneider EuroPC with MS-Dos 3.3 and it works.

    You don't have to do it everytime your computer boots... you can disable it permanately... or until you wish to turn it back on.

    start --> settings --> control panel --> admin tools --> services -->

    find the messenger service. Right click --> properties --> change it to disabled.

    Thats all there is to it.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    If you want a quick way to change these annoying WinXP defaults, then try http://www.xp-antispy.de (only 64K)
    Don't worry about the fact it is German - it's freeware, the help is in English, and it works.
    It has a nice friendly GUI, and covers the two points you have mentioned, plus a few more ..
