    It's a pop-up advert, surely you have seen them before?

    I think its actually a pop-up ad, not anything from messenger. If you look, the title has '- Microsoft Internet Explorer' on the end.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    It's a web page you dufus It's just an IE window showing you a jpg of a static console image. To disable this, uninstall IE or something
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    You sound just like my parents, they always click on the ads on the websites that look like popup windows (but you can tell easily that they aren't). My dad even clicked on one while he was using Linux one time!

    The push button should've gave it all away.

    Thanks Hammer,
    thats a good question! How Could I miss it?

    (i guess thats what happens to you when you sit infront of the computer for more than 48 hrs and plan to finally get some sleep at 5 am.)
