In MS AntiSpyware under
Real Time Protection,
Internet Agent Checkpoints,
Windows NetBIOS Messenger Service,
it says...
Most users who are not on a corporate nnetwork turn off and disable Windows
NetBIOS Messenger service.
IT CAN BE RE-ENABLED IN YOUR CONTROL PANEL SERVICE IF NEEDED.

I told MS AntiSpyware to turn it off. BUT, I'd like to know how to turn it
back on. CONTROL PANEL SERVICE means nothing to me.

Please advise.

1. Right-click on my computer.
2. Manage
3. Services and applications
4. Services
5. Find "Messenger" in the list of services, right-click on it and choose
properties.
6. Change startup type to Automatic, click the start button and close the
window using the OK button.
