About Windows Messenger Service


A brief introduction.

Windows messenger service was offered in some of the earlier versions of the Windows operating system and was meant to be used in a closed environment.

To note: Not to be mistaken for Windows Live Messenger which came later and was used to send communications between computers or users.

With Windows messenger service, Windows aimed at communicating at crucial junctures with the person operating the computer.

Most of the time, Windows messenger service conveyed system messages that pointed to the readiness of the system or the lack of preparedness to perform a task. 

About Windows Messenger Service Features

When it was introduced, Windows messenger service served to convey important system information to the user. However, as the windows kernel got to be more advanced, other substitute programs went on to convey messages or to flag an incident. There were one or two notable advantages of the older system of messenger service, which has since been discontinued.

Dedicated lines of communication

With Windows messenger service having to be there as pop-ups to warn and prevent possible damage to the system, it was one of the most reliable of services possible at the time.

Unmistakably evident

Since most of the time, the service came about as pop up messages; it tended to override the other prevailing systems and applications that are being run on the system.  Thus conveying the urgent message every time.

Final Thoughts:
Technologies, when they are past their prime, are best discarded.  With windows messenger, it came to pass that the newer ways that the computer chose to communicate with the user were generations ahead of the previous system. Thus it is hardly surprising that it was given the go by at some point in time
