When I have entered SSDP Discovery Service

in the start up List search

 

There was only one listing and that is for a Trojan, . . .

 

Should there not be some other information ?

 

 

 

Other Information I have obtained ;

Possibly this should be added as a reference to this service.

 

 

Service Name SSDPSRV Process Name svchost.exe -k LocalService Default Settings    XP Home   : Manual    XP Pro   : Manual Microsoft Service Description Enables discovery of UPnP devices on your home network. Dependencies HTTP   Real World Description Remember, a UPnP device is external (not inside the computer case) and a part of the local network. For more info on UPnP, click here. They are not the same thing as PnP devices. Is this service needed?

   Possibly  

Recommended Setting:

Disabled

Note Updated to reflect SP2 changes.

A previous version of this file is in the Database here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/ssdpsrv.exe-5174.html

From the research I have done, the dll version that runs under svchost.exe does not appear to be a startup.

I know it runs under services. On my computer, I have it set to manual. It's up to the user as to whether to disable it or not depending on the user's needs. For example, if you have a home network, this service needs to be enabled.

For more information, you can read here: http://dll.paretologic.com/detail.php/ssdpsrv
