    Closing all ports that are not needed and applying all the patches would be a good start

    If "they" continue breaking in you're in serious trouble. I'll bet the culprits broke in once and installed a couple of backdoors. I do hope you have backups of your data!

    What to do after a break in:

    1) Forget about patching/cleaning it. There's no way to tell what they "touched" and/or modified.
    2) Format *all* the drives. Better yet, replace them if possible and keep the old ones for research by forensic experts.
    3) reinstall from original media.
    4) apply *all* patches.
    5) properly secure the machine.
    5) restore your data (not the programs! Use 3 for that).
    6) connect it back on the network.

    Merged threads (thus removing dups), removed excess posts and renamed thread so it made sense.

    Have you reviewed your firewall logs? That could give you an indication on how this happened. Also, if this is your system and people are hacking it. Would this be because you hang out in questionable forums and on IRC trying to find skript kiddie tools and others are trying to teach you a lesson. One last thing is, who in their right mind would hire you as a LAN Admin?
