    Every time I boot up it says SSDP Service (SSDPSRV.exe) wants to access the Internet.

    Is there anyway to find out what program this goes to?

    Or maybe 'Quick view' would give you a clue.

    Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) and General Event Notification Architecture (GENA) services for network plug and play functionality. Starts up a web server on port 5000. Used by Universal Plug and Play (for network device discovery). To remove this program, open Add/Remove Programs, select either Communications (Me) or Networking Services (XP), and remove the checkmark next to Universal Plug and Play

    OK great guys! I guess my main concern now is could this be a trojan using a common file name, but Norton should be able to detect that when I run a virus check.

    Thanks again :D

    In other words, just one more thing trying to 'phone home'. This time brought to you by those friendly people that advocate 'Safe and Trustworthy Computing'. :D :D
