Has anyone yet researched a way to disable messenger [or anything else]
via a one-shot, scripted approach, a la a .REG file that just does the
right thing?  Under NT it seemed as easy as setting a value for "Start"
somewhere under currentcontrolset\whatever\servicename to 0x00000004
to mean "disabled", but under 2k or XP it seems a bit more complex.
Still, this should NOT be hard for some windows wonk to come up with,
and save countless hours of people wading the goddamn GUI to do it.
