    detecting netsend

    hi all, im making a mock instant messenger using netsend and i was wondering im done with it except for one thing, i was wondering if theres a way i can have my app detect if netsend is already enabled and if its stopped it could start it, right now i just have it start it whether it needs it or not with system("net start messenger"); but that cases a 15-30 second hang, so i want to only start it if needed.... any help would be greatly appreciated.... or if theres a way to start it without system(); that is faster that would work too....

    Translation:

    "I want to spam this $$$$ out of people. Please help me, because people shut off netsend which prevents me from exploiting their system in this respect."

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    lol if it was for spam why wouldnt i just forcefully turn it on, im looking for performance.

    all im trying to do is make my app run smooth instead of forcefully turning on netsend each time you send a message which causes a 15-30 second hang, ive seen other posts about netsend on here and they werent accused of spamming. plus if it was for spam, and the person downloaded and ran an executable, why would i even need to use netsend to send my spam lol....

    anyways, if anyone else has serious help and not childish accusations it would be appreciated very much.

    another problem, the net send messenger im making works on my home network, so now i tried using it over the internet with my buddie but we werent able to send each other the messages, so what i dont understand is how can the spammers message me and him if we cant message each other...

    my messenger was inspired by the spammers its not to spam its just to play arround with with my friends, but anyways, is there something else you have to do to use netsend over the internet like the spammers?
