    Default Any explanation for how NetBios goes back to Default setting?

    Hello all!

    I randomly perform the netstat -anob command now and then to see active connections.

    Is there any reason why the Netbios feature (port :139) would go back to Default when I am sure I disabled it when I bought the computer 3 months ago?

    Since then the only things that have been done are normal use. I did have to perform the 28 step clean-up of ZA-ISS to downgrade to version 7.1 from version 8.

    I noticed because I saw that port as a "Listening" state when it has previously been in a Closed state.

    Odd....

    How exactly did you disable the netbios port 139?

    Sorry I needed to clarify.

    I originally disabled it under Network properties and selected the TCP/IP selection (e.g. right click the Network adaptor/Local Area connection, and select Disable NetBios under TCP/IP)

    So I'm confused as to how it went back to default :-(

    Windows updates or the network driver gets an update (also seen in windows updates) or a TCP/IP reset either by convienent software or in the command prompt or installing SP3 for the XP are some ways the GUI gets reset for the netbios.
    Doing the disable of the netbios in the network properties is a lightweight approach.

    Try these for methods for some real fight!

    Hahaha I found many of those readings very informative, thank you for finding them for me!

    I noticed that it had to have been turned on less then a week ago (possibly last Sunday). There have been no Windows updates since then, and this is Vista Ultimate.

    I noticed that the net.exe and net1.exe prompts have been used as determined by the Program Control list.

    I've never used those command prompts, as I only use cmd.exe and netstat

    The day keeps getting weirder.

    Maybe Ultimate decided for you?
    Anything with the changes made in the proper accounts have to do with it?

    Where did it go to Default settings? In the ZA list for Trusted? Internet?
    Medium security for Internet zone, if you use that setting, can have it disabled along with 137 and 138 and 135 and 445.
    You can allow it for your trusted zone - printers, computers - it's the port where the key connection is made between file sharing computers. When you make one connection, Windows starts another one ready to listen for the next connection. I don't think you can defeat it other than restrict to the trusted LAN and shut off NetBios in network properties and services.
    Do you have NetBIOS disabled in the TCP/IP properties of the network adapter?

    28-point cleanup. That toughens you up. Strenghthens your character. Just training so you won't forget how to do it
