Messenger service (net send) disable GPO

    General discussion

  • Hello all

    We have a mixed environment of Windows 7 and Windows XP desktops.

    Our domain controllers are all Windows 2008 R2.

    My question is: I am aware that Messenger service (netsend) isn't available on Windows 7 desktops it's only for XP.

    How would you go about in disabling the messenger service using GPO for those Windows XP computers?

  • I'd love to be able to offer a promise that the setting for this is there, but I would think that going to computer configuration>Windows settings>Security Settings>System services would have the messenger service listed for you to disable?
