I have a xp and a win2000 on dsl with a router. On the router the xp is plugged into #1 and 2000 into #2. In past when i shut down both pc's, both lights on router went out. Now when i shut down the xp it blinks then stays on and #2 (win2000) goes out as allways. The xp is turned off but seems like still online.
I tryed switching wires but light on router for xp still stays on. Can there be a bot or something keeping the xp online when turned off ??.
I have scanned with my antispyware and antivirus plus houscall but do not find anything.
New and still learning----Thanks for any help.
Thank you Chewy for fast answer.
I unpluged the power back of pc and yes the router light did go off.
Guess all is fine--just that i was reading how bot's or whatever can use your pc to send out spam et.. but guess not when pc is off.
