No process listening on port 445

Hi!

I have the following problem on just one computer (Windows XP SP3):

net use * \\<ip>\<share> /u:<user> <pass>

produces "Error 67 - Network path not found". Works ok on all other computers.

It seems that SMB is not served on port 445, i.e.

netstat -an

on the "bad" computer shows no activity on port 445 ("UDP 0.0.0.0:445 *:*", or
"TCP 0.0.0.0:445 0.0.0.0.:0" rsp. don't even show up).

The mapping - for security reasons - has to be made via CIFS (DMZ, Firewall).

Actions so far:

1) Reinstalled TCP/IP
2) Checked HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters\TransportBindName
=> value is correct with "\Device\"
3) Checked settings under WINS tab => CIFS is allowed (NetbiosOptions = 0)
4) Client for Microsoft Network is installed and running
5) No errors in the event log.

Any ideas?

What is your Internet security / firewall / anti-virus software? Some
will / may block the SMB protocol.

Windows Firewall is off.
Antivirus: Avira Premium (this runs on all other computers too - w/o any problems)

I think this is some kind of a kinky Registry problem...

Thanks for your words.
