Hi guys,
I'm trying to figure out messaging in the cmd prompt. I type 'net start messenger' and it responds with
'the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.'

any ideas?

XP SP2 disables the messenger service.

You have to go into your services thru control panel and restart it.

With all the spyware and Trojan programs out there lately, most folks want that service disabled anyway.

But if you really want it turned on:
Start / Run / services.msc
Scroll down to Messenger
Set the startup type to whatever you want and start the service.
