Yeah, never once occured to me to mention it. Who would have thought THAT of all things could cause all these problems.

We still have a hacker knocking on our door, but he didn't get in and cause chaos.
APC took care of that part for us. :tazz:

Thanks for your help with my wild goose chase.

OMG I am having the exact same problem, even stuck on 7/27 virus defs.
Can't apply patches or updates and can't go to windowsupdate. IE just freezes, although task manager says it is still running even after 15 minutes. SAV says autoprotect is disabled. This is my mail server. It's still running ok but I know something is going on in the background that I can't find. I was able to apply the zobot patch (ms kb899588) by downloading it first and then booting up in safe mode and applying it. I've reinstalled IE6 and tried to reapply sp4 but it gets to "inspecting configuration" and freezes.

OK guys and girls, something is going on here. I need help please, I'm stumped on this one.

Just as an FYI, prisoner.iana.org is a blackhole and part of the big IANA system. The error message relates to system either 1) not having a reverse lookup in your w2k\w2k3 DNS box or 2) netbios over tcp/ip disabled - it kinda depends on what you've setup and how

here's one link:
http://www.jsifaq.co...5600/rh5612.htm
and another:
http://forum.adiscon.../topic,254.html

When I first fouind it I was worried about a server being zombie or a bot, but no, just a poor configuration by someone else.

HEY! I think this posted to the wrong place. Just ignore it - I don't see anyway to delete this from the edit option.

You actually got off kind of easy. On many of my effected machines I had to boot into recovery console and stop the service before I was able to upgrade. Even Safe Mode was messed up.

APC does have this posted on their site now.
Most people have probably fixed it by now, or FDISKed there machine's by now though.

YIKES! :tazz: And here I thought my job sucked.

So how do you manage to keep on top of all the updates for everything?

Sad part is I had the APC software set to automatically check for updates. Never bothered to check and see if it actually did it though.
