    I have been offline for awhile, so when windows update mandager realised I
    had connectivity again, it spat up a long list of critical updates I
    needed.
    Fine.
    Except the icon in sys tray disappeared after 10 minutes, however the modem
    is still xferring data flat out, with no other web based applications
    running.
    My question is, "is the update manager still running, even tho the icon has
    been removed from systray?"

    TIA

    but wait theres more ....
    I am not firewalled at present. appended is the output of netstat.
    modem says 20 MB have been sent (!!!?) 8 MB have been rec'd.
    Netstat indicates some kind of microsoft lunacy. What is microsoft-ds?

    Update has clearly not been working, it turned itself off so I could better
    send a heap of meaningless requests to someone - it is 8% complete after 2
    and a half hours.

    Despite the grief sygate caused I want to reinstall, however I can't get
    enough bandwidth for the dload to start. Probably because of all the
    bullshit below.

    Looking in system32/drivers/etc/services indicates that it is port 445
    (both udp and tcp).

    From memory I think port 445 is the new W2K and later netbios free version
    of CIFS (ie file sharing). I don't know why Windows Update would be using
    CIFS though.

    Cheers

    Your computer has been compromised by a worm because you didn't enable
    the firewall. The worm is now using your PC to hit other computers in
    your subnet to infect them. This will slow your internet connection
    down a LOT.

    Get a virus scanner, and get firewalled ASAP.

    Thanks mate, that is precisely what I am doing.
    Though I think it is reinfecting itself. I turned system restore off and
    AVG is still showing trojans, trojans that it cannot move.

    Sygate is re downloading at a painful 1.66 kbps:(

    It amazes me. The machine was clean when I took it offline several months
    ago. I have been online for less than 2 hours and there are infections
    everywhere. And I have not configured or used email yet.

    Airborne viri? Infected via mosquito?

    cheers :)

    Think about it. It was clean when last used months ago, right? Do you think
    that in the interim that all the virus/trojan/etc writers went on holiday
    too? Of course not. Since you needed internet access to get the interim
    patches, you needed a firewall to protect you. Two minutes online is all
    that is needed to get infected.

    RJ out.

    A friend of mine (it wasn't me, honest!) did a format/fresh install of 2K
    and installed DU Meter, then went on-line to update AVG with no firewall.
    (Was going to download a firewall next) Within 60 seconds more data was
    going out than was coming in. It had a worm/trojan and it had been infected
    in under a minute! This was confirmed when the AVG update had downloaded and
    was run. It can take *seconds* for an unprotected PC to get infected, you
    may have infected a few yourself.

    The viruses stay running and resident in memory. I've found that
    starting up in Safe Mode will help, then re-running the scanner.

    It spreads via holes in the windows RPC system usually, so you don't
    have to click on an e-mail or accept an ActiveX plugin on a website.
    The viruses jump from machine to machine within seconds, automatically
    installing themselves then broadcasting out looking for other hosts to
    infect.

    The RPC system has been patched by Windows updates but as you've found
    out, it's hard to be up-to-date BEFORE downloading updates! The
    "Internet Connection Firewall" that came with XP is good enough to
    block most of these infiltrations before you can get the system
    patched and a decent firewall installed.

    It's generally the Sasser worm and variants that gets in first. Try
    grabbing the Sasser removal tool from Symantec's website, it may weed
    out things that AVG refuses to touch. As a good measure, try running
    that in Safe Mode too.

    I find that "Stinger" from mcafee is better, like a removal tool for ~20
    infections, like the top 20 or something.

    Thanks Dave, I might have to look into that, might be something worth
    keeping around my neck on my USB Drive.

    they update it every few weeks, hell, maybe more often than that, but I
    grab it at work every few weeks.
