How to detect rogue DHCP: MS RogueChecker says I have a rogue DHCP

First time posting here, but I've read this forum for help before, lots of good help here.



I used MS's RougeChecker.exe and ran it. It says: 1 Rouge Server Detected. So that worried me! But I'm so clueless about it that I wanted to know if there was a way to confirm that? and if true what to do about it? I have a simple home set up with my PC and my wife's laptop.

I have just 1 modem/router unit...When I ran Rogue DHCP Server detection, It didn't really give me much information that I could understand. It showed just one listing that was tagged with a ! and below in red it said Number of Rouge Servers Detected: 1 Just like this stock photo below. So I'm not sure what to do next?

Run this its portable so you just run see what it finds NetBScanner - NetBIOS scanner


if from a cmd prompt you type


ipconfig/all

NetBScanner, I ran this and it had only one entry which was my IP address for my device PC, I checked that in my router and they match up, so that looks good.


I also ran cmd ipconfig/all and the dhcp server had only one listed which was my own IP address (the one I type into the browser's URL to open up the router's software).


So that sounds like there's maybe no problem? What do you think?

Why is it that no anti virus program seems able to thwart the Rouge Antivirus viruses? lots of folks get tricked by these, and the major anti virus companies have done little to stop it. Anybody have any idea why it is so tough to prevent infection from these sorts of viruses?
