Mostly used for admin notification. I don't know of any applications that
need to have it turned on. Some antivirus applications may use it to notify
about virus. As a matter of fact if I am correct Microsoft is going to shut
the service of by default as of XP service pack 2.

Subject: Which software requires the Messenger Service?

lo all,
I would like to compile a list of software which relies on the Messenger
Service for inter process communication. I believe some backup software
packages due but i'm not entirely positive. Has anyone ever shut the service
off and had other services complain? Thanks a lot for your input and if I
get enough I will post a list of the packages on my site sh0dan.org.
Thank you,
