I have a peer to peer with W2K machines.  We set it up to share the laser printer on one machine.  Recently we discover that the machine had been compromised and Firedaemon loaded on it.  I have disabled the Firedaemon service but now we cannot get access to any of the resources on that computer.  I have removed and readded the user but still no access.  What's up?

You can try removing it and readding to domain if you have one (do you?)

Any time a system is badly compromised, I think a good idea is to rebuild it from scratch to remove both the known and the unknown abuse.  After making a build, getting that onto CD helps later on for further builds. I'd also suggest giving it a different name and address in case it is a target, and make sure you do not have too many programs running at startup or too many /quote/ users defined.  Make sure the box gets a new admin and admin password.

Firedaemon is a legitimate software.  It's being used as payload by trojan and worm.  Run trojan/worm/keystroke remover to get rid of the real culprit.

Check the resource's NTFS permission security.  Also, restore group policy and run computer policy basicwk.inf... to restore your security settings.
