Yes, what is running on the NT Server. I've seen store.exe from Exchange
do this. I've seen the print spooler do this. I've seen administrators
install the distributed.net RC5/DES client as a service on their
servers. I've seen Setiathome installed on servers.

If you can actually use the machine it is most likely one of the last
two. If you are barely able to login to the machine it is most likely
one of the former.
