Looked at that. It's designed to 'pop up' when they hit print to confirm the cost of the print or to ask for departmental ID and Password to be able to print.

Or you could just use group policy, I used GP to dissable the messenger service on XP and 2K stations in the past you can use it to start it as well.

How would I batch this?
I tried just listing putting the various lines into a bat file but it doesn't start the service. If however I do it manually, one by one, it does.
Edit: Think I've cracked it.

You can do this from the preferences extension in group policy managment.
computer configuratoin, prefrences, control panel settings, services.

Going the GP route is out of the question.
I need to do this using the command provided.

You can also use PsService Just add the commands to a batch file.

you wouldnt it would just apply to the computer(s) you have the policy applied to at next group policy refresh (or possibly reboot not 100% sure if it will start a stopped service) and once its set you never have to worry about it again any new pcs added that get that policy will automatically have the service turned on. I use this method to stop javawebstart that can play havock with java upgrades and have few problems

I have the command which works:
sc \\machine config messenger start= auto
I'm just wanting to know how to run multiple from a bat file. As it stands, I've got it, I beleive. I needed a line space between each command.

New line in your batch file for each machine?

Got it, cheers.

The problem with the .bat file is that the messenger sercie isn't just stopped it's dissabled so you need to set it to manual or automatic first then start it.

I've ran that command to set it to auto so I assume it'll either start now, or on next boot?
