    how to disable the messenger service from the server

    We have had problems with kids gettings hold of a cmd promt and then doing net send.

    Is there a policy that will turn the service off on all work stations kids are logged into?

    It should be turned off by default on XP SP2...what client OS are you using?

    I dont know of a policy specifically but a startup batch file of 'net stop messenger' will do the trick

    You can also disable the service remotely as well using the sc command.
