UDCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service upnphost with arguments "" in order to run the server:

Nothings wrong its just Win xp telling you you have disabled UNPNP annoying but thats all.

DO NOT show the message?

Also, when I do disable UPNP Norton Firewall logs thousends of outgoing UPNP requests and denys them.

Why, normal?

The PC runs on a small network and is not a server but shares a folder.

Other services are probably trying to use it click here Universal Plug and Play Device Host

To do with networking not plug n play devices such as scanners and printers.

What could be, I share a printer, but not internet.

And why if I enable it does norton detect lots of outgoing via the internet????

Server process on this PC works fine, no problems with networking.

This system does not act as the main server anyway.
