You could always make a file called stopmess.reg and then have the user just
double click/merge it into there registry.  The probably would need to
reboot but this should work.

...Open notepad and copy/paste this into it:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Messenger]
"Start"=dword:00000004

...Then save the file as stopmess.reg or whatever.
