Tool to remotely start messenger service

We are working with Windows Server 2003 SP1 and Windows XP SP2 clients. On all the client computer the service Messenger is disabled but we would like to have it all enabled so that we can use it for messages when a reboot is needed for the server etc..

Is there a handy tool available so that we're able to enable the service messenger on all client computers within the domain and also to have it set on automaticly start.

I have already looked around but havent been able to find a tool wich fits what we want (tho i havent looked that hard cause of other workstuff).

Thnx for the help in advance.
