sounds like you have default network settings there. as lonfg as you have a firewall, windows or zonealarm, that will protect you from most of the general issues regarding security. firewalls monitor incoming and outgoing traffic, so it decides upon a set of rules whick "packets" are allowed to go and come into your lap. as far as the "1394" connection, that is a firewire connectrion if you wanna plug your lap into another lap using firewire, not applicable to wireless.
HP connection assistant, you can disable it from startup if you wish, start>run> type in "msconfig" hit enter, click the startup tab, go through the list, find the program you want out of startup, remove the checkmark, click apply, then ok, then reboot. voila, it isnt on startup. to start it up in windows once this is done, click on start>all programs, then you should see something with "HP" in it, in that should be your connection assistant.
hope this helps!
