For some reason this event is logged (on Win2k3 in this case), even when the firewall is disabled and the specified process (C:\WINDOWS\system32\someprocess.exe) is setup as an exception.

The only way I was able to get rid of these events was by stopping the SharedAccess (Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)) service.

Once stopped, no more 861 events were logged.

This of course disables the firewall, which of course was already OFF in my case.
