Annoying Print Complete message

On a Windows NT4 network, one Windows 2000 Professional workstation displays a message (from the spooler I think) saying that the print job is complete (after printing to a network printer).  It is no great problem and disappears when OK is clicked.  The other workstations (Win 95, 98, & 2000) on the network do not display this message.  When printing from a network DOS application the message causes the DOS application to minimize.  It gets kind of annoying after a while.
How do I prevent this message from being displayed?

Open start | settings | printers

Righclick in an empty spot in the window and in the menu choose "Server properties"
Click "Advanced" and uncheck the item "Notify when remote documents are printed"

Hope this helps

Your system is picking up the messenger and alerter services from your domain controller.  If you haven't already, do the following:

1.  Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
2.  From the File menu, click Server Properties.
3.  On the Advance tab, click "Notify when Remote Documents are Printed" so that it is not selected.
4.  Stop and restart the Spooler service from the Services portion of Control Panel so the new setting will take effect. In Windows 2000, start and restart the Spooler service from the Services snap-in under Administrative Tools.

jnogalski: Welcome to EE. Please read the text in the bottom about submitting comments vs answers. Your answer is obviously duplicating mine.
The significant part is:
>>Answers
An answer is a specific solution to a question and should be submitted if it will solve the questioner's problem and doesn't duplicate a previous comment.

Also this one has relevance:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#7

Don't take this wrong, but this is one of the topic areas, where it is common practise only to post comments, and let the questioner decide which comment helped him the most. If i don't tell you, someone else will. Look forward to work and learn with you in the future.

Tonny

Here you go, tonny,

Terry_Eisler, I'm not particularly amused by having to chase after you to accept your answers on your behalf. I've charged you an extra 50 points for the privilege.

If you could kindly re-visit this question and explain what's going on you can have those 50 points back.

regards
