I am running XP Home edition 2002 sp2
in my Network connections I found an
'Internet Gateway > Internet Connection'
which i am sure i have never seen before
when i viewed the properties of the 'Internet Connection'
icon it had a 'settings' button
clicking this opened a 'services' dialog which had 3 entries
livecall (192.168.1.100:8345) 21985 UDP
livecall (192.168.1.100:8345) 36069 TCP
MsnMsgr (192.168.1.100:10205) 4582 UDP
I unchecked these items and also 'disabled' this interent gateway and my internet still seems to be running fine
I do have SKYPE and MSN installed and i use SKYPE for VoiP
Can anyone tell me whether these settings have allowed someone to access my PC ?
