I have been trying to shut down the messenger service for a while now. I took it out of the start menu and still it returns. I dont remember where but i believe I even took it out of msconfig somewhere, but still it returns
You could also "disallow" it to run on your machine by using the group policy editor. Go to start-run then gpedit.msc . You will find all kinds of cool things to play with in there. But when disabled it will not start at all. I didnt want to unistall it because it is the fastest way to use the PC to PC feature, which is cool if your always helping family or friends.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
