Hi Ray

There is an issue with MS messenger - spammers were using it to their
hearts content.  Unless you have a specific reason to have messenger on,
leave it off....

Subject: [windows2000] Messenger service reverts to manual startup

Hi list,
 
There is one computer in the domain here, Windows 2000 SP4, that every
time it is rebooted, the messenger service reverts back to a manual
startup setting.  I go in and I change the startup to automatic, but
sure enough on reboot, it's back to manual.  There are no policies setup
in the domain about the messenger service, and best I can tell, there is
nothing different about this computer when compared to the 800 other
computers in the domain that have messenger set to automatic.  Any
thoughts on this?

Thank you
