I was looking around, and my parents think it would be cool to set up a messenger program on the computers in the house so that the computers have the ability to talk to each other. (All Computers windows XP SP2) I know that Net Send exists and is currently defaulted to "disabled" for safty reasons, is there a free Intranet Messenger that can be downloaded and used, or is there a feature I might not know about? Thanks in advance.

(I havnt put down the download link, but you will find it on the site. I just gave you this link so that you can look around and see if you want the program.)

Check that out and see if you like it. Small and easy to use.

Enjoy.... :whistling:

I agree completely. :whistling:

On another note:

I tried to install and run the program and it didn't seem to work, also it wants me to buy licences for every PC I want to use it on. Also Uninstalling it was a hassel and it gave me a lot of errors simply while uninstalling it.

Does anyone have any other programs/Ideas?
