I'd say that imageshack looks pretty non-fraudulent...

Useless Messenger Service in Windows. Want to disable it?

Type "services.msc" at the run box.
Navigate your way to "Messenger", and disable it.
Easy as cake.

If you have SP2, it will disable automatically.

Yep. Its phony. You still have windows messenger left on, its a service that came included with windows, but it left your computer open the whole time.

So go to the run command, type in services.msc, look for messenger, disable it.

Patchnow.net. It's adware. Just do a google on it.

Why would you get phony software with Windows?

You do get adware/spyware with Window$, it's called Alexa.

What he has there is adware from patchnow.net.
