An 'alien' workgroup

By oysterio ·
Hi everyone.

I am very new to this community.. and i need professional advise as well as help.

I am an NT administrator of the IT department in my school. Just now, all of a sudden, there is this workgroup called 'f---er' appeared on the network neighbourhood, while i was browsing the network on my NT server. I tried to open it up but it prompts me an error msg saying the 'Workgroup name not responding' or something like that... (i couldn't recall as i didn't write it down) I wouldn't want to click on it again, as it took a long time before i can actually see the error msg.

The problem is, everyone in my department can see it, including my Head of Department.

I am not sure whether the whole school can see it cos' i have not asked around. But i definitely wouldn't want my boss to be accidentally see this... :0(

My question is:-

1. is there any way that i can delete this workgroup from the server or any windows OS?? or maybe from DOS??

2. can anyone also explain tome how this thing can happen???

3. Any ideas on how to protect such a thing from happening again??

4. Please help me....!!!!! i need help!!! I had never come across this situation before...
