TS Problems?

Hi Group, I am writing this in hopes of getting some advice in trying to solve a little mystery. As it is right now I 
am in charge of a small network (about 50 computers total, including servers). There are only 2 Windows XP machines on 
the network that end users use. 
I decided to scan one them to see if Terminal Services was running by using ProbeTS v1.0. It returned a response saying 
that it is in fact running (and to quote Thor: "If it gets one, it knows it is a TServer."). Now if I try to connect to 
it using Remote Desktop client, it times out and says that it is not running. I am aware that it can be configured to 
run on other ports so I did an nmap scan go the following:
135/tcp  open  msrpc
139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
1025/tcp open  NFS-or-IIS
4899/tcp open  radmin
5000/tcp open  UPnP
5225/tcp open  unknown
5226/tcp open  unknown
8008/tcp open  unknown
Port 5525 is running some HP software (with Apache) and I am not sure about port 5226. I have assumed that it is also 
the HP software (although nothing comes up when I telnet to it). 
As for 8008, when I telnet to it it returns the following:
Am I being paranoid? Any idea what it could be? Is there any way that I can fully verify that TS is or is not running 
on the machine? Thanks for all the help.
