could be a worm

by TGVisionary In reply to iis

This sounds like the symptoms of a worm. Make sure you have the latest MS Updates installed.
You can be sure by unplugging from the network. and rebooting. If IIS acts normal, plug back into the network. If IIS goes nuts, then you are either being attacked or you are succeptable to a worm.
One other thing you might want to try is turning on your XP firewall. has info half way down the page on how to turn it on.
