    Microsoft Messenger service using up too much battery on HP Windows XP notebook

    Microsoft Messenger service is currently activated on my HP Windows XP notebook and I seriously doubt that this is causing abnormal battery consumption. How can I disable this option to be on safer side?

    The control panel of the system is the first to be visited on your system. Then you can tap and choose the ‘Administrative Tools’ option. After that the ‘Services’ on the resulting screen must be hit and selected. Then you can go for the ‘Messenger’ option on the screen. Followed by that, the ‘Messenger Properties’ option has to be chosen. After that the ‘Startup Type’ option on the current screen must be hit. Further you can tap and select the ‘stop’ option on the section. Finally the ‘apply’ option must be selected to disable the option on your device.
