laurie, go to http://www.sysinternals.com and get yourself a copy of
tcpview.  also go and get "stinger" from the mcaffee website.
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/  give those a whirl on your server.  stinger
will take care of the most recent viri, tcpview will show you all the open
connections to your server and where the exes are that are being exploited.

sounds like you're either infected with viri or you're 0wned.

also sounds like the administration doesn't care.  that sucks.

also sounds like you have a lot of work ahead of you.  :(
