I run my laptop at work and the big LAN guys monitor various things
that could be suspect. Today I was told that nginx is running on my
laptop's IP, occasionally spiking, and making them nervous.
I run Windows Vista Home addition and I don't need a server on it. I
have been reading that nginx is a web servrer, like apache. Which is
all fine and good but I don't know how it got on my laptop, and I
don't know how to get it off.
Perhaps it installed with some other application? My work thinks it
may be spam, adware, malware, or otherwise malicious.
If anyone knows how I can remove this please let me know. I've spent
the last couple hours on google and all I can find about nginx is that
it's a web and mail server, I can't find what apps might use it, and
how I can remove it.
