The ongoing saga of Buggy McNetwork

Right, so almost everyone with Windows 2000 and up experienced problems with svchost and netapi32.dll, starting last week.

Me included. I have that dual-boot 98SE/XP thing going on, and because I've been revisiting 1988, I've had to stay on XP for a really long time, so I'm getting hit with all sorts of new bugs I'd never heard of.

I've just gotten File & Printer Sharing working, so shutting down all my ports now was not going to happen.

If you use Windows XP, get the netapi32 upgrade, enable your firewall, close the DCOM (135) and 445 ports with the Windows Worm Door Cleaner, and thank me later.
