Well I have received a few people all exhibiting this, and say it can

I suggest we investigate more, honeypot, full diff, etc. Anyone

Ok I am not a windows expert.. so please somebody with more knowledge
jump in. I would look for the following info between machines:

Drivers loaded
Patch set order
Registry dump

looking for data in either ascii or hex for the ip address that the

out on the network in responce to a ghost packet it thought it saw.
