Can anyone let me know if the Messenger service gets disabled by default on
XP SP2 stations?

Yes, it does.

As Doug indicates, it does.

Since on my LAN we wanted NetBIOS Pop-Ups, I ran the following in my Login Script.

sc.exe config messenger start= auto
net start messenger

It was scripted such that it would run just once and not on subsequent logons.
