I've heard of this once b4! Try changing the drive.
Instead of:
:A
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A

Try:
:C
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto C

Thank you, Aaron A. 13

Changing the letter doesn't change the drive.

For example it can be what is given....
--------------------------------
:A
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A
--------------------------------

or.....

--------------------------------

:start
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto start
---------------------------------

The colon followed by a word (for example :begin) is a checkpoint for the batch file.
The goto command is used to go to that checkpoint (to go the ":begin" checkpoint, type "goto begin" - or in other words take away the colon).

Hope that makes sense!
what are you talking about idont no you
make sure you do this:
first go to control panel, then admin tools, then services, then scroll down to messenger, it should be disabled, then double click it and change the setting to manual. but to do this, you need to do this with the other persons computer and have their IP (internet protocol) address.

since I see the responses and don't see anyone answering your question....you will have to find and download a program that will allow you to use dos to send messages as Vista does NOT allow the Net Send messages. Sorry.
