I see that the network scanning utility can inventory network shares, even
"hidden" shares which end with "$" ... it is a big inventory time saver.
I did not try this while logged in as a "garden variety" user with
diminished rights, but wonder if this allows these hidden shares to be
revealed..it is not a major security issue, but the utility defeats the
layer that hidden shares provide .

Symantec antivirus reports that the Produkey utility is malware, but that
didn't surprise me much, the utility would obviously be useful to someone
who's purpose for recovering those keys was less than legal.
I tried using the lspfix utility yesterday on a machine that was having
network problems, it reported there was a problem, but when you click the
finish button, it didn't fix it as it said it would. Turns out, since the
machine had XP SP2 installed, there's another easy way to fix the LSP chain,
just type "netsh winsock reset" at a command prompt. That worked.
