Q

How do I stop messages coming directly to the computer ID number?

Messages appear on my desktop that seem to come directly to the computer ID number, not through e-mail. Is there a way to stop them?
Turn off the messenger service. Block NetBIOS ports at the firewall. Many messages like this are possible because access is allowed that shouldn't be.
