Whenever I've recieved back machines from off-site repair,
I normally go over the tcp/ip and firewall/anti-virus settings
with a fine tooth comb because frequently those settings were
modified by the repair facility to fit their needs.
It's not normally a problem, but a review of local/effective
security settings doesn't hurt either.
What you're seeing just strikes me that way.
