    I have the service called MESSENGER disabled (in windows Xp Professional).
    However, something called "windows messenger" is running and has sometimes
    appeared in my system tray. Is this program necessary? Can it/should it be
    turned off?
    Thanks,
    Al

    faq, and goto the last question.
