apparently the spam sites have found a new way to get you, the only thing i dont understand is why ZoneAlarm was letting them through?
Oh and I heard Google toolbar is spyware.

I can only tell you how to stop it in XP (I've never used 2K)
Go to your ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS and select SERVICES.
In there you will find a process running called MESSENGER.
Right click on it and hit STOP, then right click and hit PROPERITES and set it's STARTUP TYPE to Disabled.
Poof, no more of those annoy popups.
P.S. I don't use XP Home either (I use Pro), so if you do use XP Home and you can't do this, I can't help you.

Of course, the company collects all this information if you enter a query directly into Google.com without using the Toolbar. The problem with the Toolbar is that, if the app's advanced features are running, Google also keeps a record of every single site you visit—whether you're using the app to search the Web or not.
