    On my computer which runs ms xp pro and nis 2003 i keep getting a message from the security alert that welchia_icmp_scan has tried to intrude and that the intruder is identified as my own computer with the internet address given by my isp on my broadband connection.

    Everything is up to date for Nis and ms xp pro

    no virus has been found on the machine and the fix welchia tool did not find anything wrong

    anybody got any ideas

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    Please download Hijack This and post a scan log to see what's going on.

    Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).

    Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.
