I don't understand why I have modem sharing b/c I'm not supposed to be on a network. I sure have networking folders and it looks like I'm in a workgroup. I am confused but ex-geek b/f is nut so he might be connected 2 my pc. Help? also unsure what product this form is asking for.

Can you please expand on the issues/worries? What folders/services are you seeing? Are you the only user on your home network?

By default you will be part of a workgroup called "workgroup".

What do you mean by "modem sharing?" How are you connected to the Internet? DSL? Cable Modem? You'll have to give us more information.

Are you seeing this in My computer?

The C:/i386 winntupg ms is most likely a link to a local folder. So not a network folder.

I see it in drive C, Windows Components, local disk folders, called NETFX under i386, says MODEMSHR Properties, file folder, MDMSHRUP.DLL Properties, then Modem sharing upgrade, then has (xpclient. and some numbers listed). also in folder shows i386`WINNTUPG`MS, WHICH SAYS IS netmap. okay, I obviously don't know what I'm doing so if this info gives no clue I understand. Thanks for your time and help.

No need to be concerned.. i386 is operating system related files.

Was there a reason you came across these files or were you just searching for stuff?
