    Hi Folks,
    This isn't causing any problems that i know off but its something that just niggles at me and i wouldn't mind getting to the bottom of it.

    When i look at the Event Viewer or set Reporting to Medium or Higher, i get 4 messages in a row every 25 seconds (approx) which says -

    "Blocked Stealth UDP port <MyPCname>(My IP address)
    (ssdp(Port Number)) from
    C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe"

    Note:- MyPCName, My IP Address and Port Number have been changed for obvious reasons.

    But why the hell does it do this. I'm sure it never on my last build...

    Help..:confused:

    blocked port

    please go into administration tools/services and disable ssdp discovery service. This is part of the universal plug and play host, this is microsoft's biggest security issue. if the universal plug and play host is also running disable that as well. Restart computer after changes
