    I don't have Messenger on my computer

    Please get rid of that evil video! Just add the text. I am on a blocked computer (curses to the guy who invented family saftey) and cannot view the video! No offense.

    hey do you know of a way to ping a list of web sites using a bat file pre programes with the web sites to ping and get it to creat a log file with the ping time info on it

    This will not work on Windows 7, Vista, ME, 95, 98
    the net send command isn't supported by that version

    If you are using Vista or Windows 7, the syntax for the network messaging command has changed. Instead of: net send [IP address] ["message"] Vista and windows 7 use 'msg' so change the line to: msg %n% %M% and that should work

    Of course it doesn't work!
    the variable "M" and "m" ore two different things
    the right code should be:

    @echo off
    :a
    echo messenger
    set /p n=user/IP:
    set /p M=Message:
    net send %n% %M%
    pause
    goto a

    i want to use this at college but with the computers we have there all got the rights taken away so cant use much but will we still be able to use this without changing anything ?
