Recently while running some log checks I found the guest account had been logging on and off, even tho I have disabled the guest acount long ago.
Now MBSA has been showing that the guest acct was active but I had thought it was an error, since when I would check it would show to be off.
Finding this I decided to check deeper and found while checking services that DCOM and RPC had been reenabled and I can no longer stop or disable those services.
The functionality is greyed out.
DCOM is still being blocked luckyly since there has been over a 1000 attemps to start the srvice.
In my admin tools I no longer seem to have the tools to set user permission levels.
I run XP Home with SP1 and all the latest updates for it.
AV and AT scans daily SpywareGuard;Blaster and Spybot S&D tea timer running also Previx. Sygate Pro
I am not sure if the P2P connection attemps are related to this or not as there are no outbound attemps from me logged.
Any ideas have I been owned as a P2P server even tho I logg no outbound connections?
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
