One of the more graphic reasons NOT to use Windoze, and especially
not to use IE and OE etc.  This one may do more good than harm.

It can possibly be protected against with a suitable hosts file.

This is nothing to do with IE/OE et al. It exploits the "send system
message" feature built into the SMB client in Windows. Normally used
by servers to announce power failures, administrators to announce
temporary system problems (e.g. "Please don't print anything to the
LaserJet for a few minutes"), and so on.

Unfortunately not.

The OP is also wrong about it avoiding laws and regulations; there has
been litigation specifically about this type of spamming. MS has
agreed to disable the service by default in future service
packs/Windows versions.

But it can easily be protected against by any of the following:

1.  A router (such as LinkSys) if one has a broadband connection
(Cable or DSL).

2.  A good software firewall.

3.  Directly modify the setting of services (not particularly
recommended for novices).

4.  Download and run Steve Gibson's "Shoot The Messenger" program from
http://www.grc.com/stm/shootthemessenger.htm .  This provides a Windows
GUI to disable this stupid service, and also to turn it on again if
the user ever wants to.  No registry or service editing.
Unfortunately it only works for NT/2000/XP.

The US government is battling right now for a restraining order

A router as such is of no use - what you need is a firewall.  Fortunately,
almost all routers designed for broadband connections are firewall/router
combinations.  The point is to use a hardware firewall that simply blocks
all incomming traffic unless you tell it otherwise (such as if you want to
run a webserver inside your network but visible outside).

There's no such thing, at least on Windows.  The OS simply doesn't allow a
clear, consistent interface for packet filtering.  A firewall is a box that
sits in the corner between your broadband line and your network - ask a
building fire inspector how secure a soft firewall would be.

That's not to say a software firewall is completly useless - it is far
better than nothing, and can do some things (like application-level
filtering) that a hardware firewall cannot.  But on its own, it is a false
sense of security.
