I think you want (and should have) NetMeeting click here

For simple messaging you could try 'Stickies'

click here

We used this at a place where I worked to ping quick messages to individuals or a group. It's only a small programme but quite handy as a messanger or as stickies on a desktop.

Stickies is great!

However Netmeeting is installed via the following...

Go to add/remove programs > Internet Tools > Netmeeting, insert XP disc.

Windows XP already has netmeeting.

Click Start, Run, Type:


Click OK.
