The ISS tool (http://www.iss.net/support/product_utilities/ms03-043/)
will do this (display a pop up). In fact, by default, the ISS tools pops
up a message directing people to their website:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
This popup is generated by the "Messenger Service".
A critical bug has been found in this service that
will allow hackers to gain control over this machine.
Microsoft describes the bug at the following URL:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-043.asp

You can protect yourself via the Windows Update
mechanism, or by disabling the "Messenger Service" via
the "Services" control panel.

The following URL provides explains why you received this message and 
additional ways that you can protect your desktop:

http://www.iss.net/support/ms03-043

THIS MESSAGE WILL CONTINUE TO APPEAR UNTIL YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM!
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The message can be customized. As it stands, some people might consider
it to be spam. The tool could be used as a very effective messenger spam
tool. Other messenger spam tools I've seen are more limited in the ports
they can send pop up messages to.

Nice tool.  Be nice to have a feature that displays a pop-up on the
remote for those instances where folks are on a dial-up, remote...  The
pop-up box could be configured with a message that the user has to do
something...

Nothing about your tool, but your advertising here sucks. Posting a 
short and factual mail would be fine, but this marketing-speech is 
really misplaced here.

Bye, Mike
