you need to disable the messenerg service + many more that are most likely enabled - these might cause security problems, annoyance, and wasted memory.

disable messenger:

run>type "services.msc" w/o quotes
scroll down to messenger>right click>disable

if you'd like to see what else to disable
check out blackviper's site (actually a mirror)

read the instructions
pretty easy to do

Install service pack 2 and all of your updates as soon as possible. People still bitch and moan about sp2, but they're almost always dumbfucks who had it coming anyways.

Disable the messenger service because it's just a spyware and spam magnet. Too highly abused, and you don't need it anyways. Download adaware, spybot, a decent firewall, a good defrag problem like diskeeper, and a registry cleaner like crap cleaner if you had a little more proficiancy.

Asides from that you should be good.

yeah, sp2 is essential. I recommend slipstreaming sp2 instead of installing on top of your current installation.

even with sp2, you'll need to modify your services - plenty of bogus shit is still enabled that you do not need. see the link I provided to see what is necessary/unnecessary.
