Messenger service not found under services.msc RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    I'm in college and last year during big projects I would contact my partners via Net Send. All the computers are Windows XP service pack 3. I'm not sure if they were service pack 3 last year, but now they are. The problem is, every time I try using net send,  it doesn't work. I know I'm typing everything right, just the same as I did before, but now it's disabled on the computers. Then I did a little research to find out how to re-enable it, and when you go to run and go to services.msc, Messenger should be found under the window that pops up, and you should have the option to start the service. Well, it's not found under services.msc on any of the computers anymore. I tried finding out how to get it back on the computers, but I can't find anything. Can someone please help me get net send (Messenger) service running on all the computers? By that, I mean just tell me how to do it.
