I observed that, system process is listening on bootps port and answering PXE
requests though I didn't had any PXE server components installed. It is a
windows XP machine. I scanned with AV and few anti-spyware tools but no
infections has been reported. I searched in internet for similar behaviors
but no luck.

Could you people will be able to comment what might went wrong here. I am
final goal is to identify the cause.

Please let me know if you need any details.
