workstation service

What sort of network is this workstation on? What client software is used to connect to the server? Please post a comment with more information to better assist you.

In the mean time, the only article that came up when searching for "workstationservice" was here:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;269239

(remove any spaces from the pasted URL found above, please)
Read into the bottom section titled More Information about NetBIOS, LMhosts and naming conficts.

Also, do a thorough virus scan and spyware scan on the workstation to make sure that no virus or spyware is trying to communicate over your network. AdAware is a great spy- or ad-ware detector. Search for spyware or adware for more information on that.

Hope this helps!
