    I have just used check my computer security from this site http://www.sygatetech.com/

    Quick Scan
    Web is closed not blocked as is IDENT and ICMP is open.

    Stealth scan
    WEB Closed
    POP3 Closed
    IDENT closed
    NetBiosclosed
    HTTPS closed
    ServerMessenger block closed
    Socks Poxy Closed
    Web Poxy Closed

    I have used the site in the past and it has always been blocked and stealthed. Any idea how Ican get the ports blocked and stealthed again please. I know the site has a Trojan scan but that one is not that good.

    Thank You for your help. I just want to get the above to stealth mode like it was before.

    The easiest way to close ports is to use a firewall such as ZoneAlarm or by using a hardware firewall (if you have one). I have both a software and hardware firewall, along with Sophos anti-virus and Spybot - Search & Destroy. You could replace Sophos with AVG (who have a free version of their anti-virus program on their website), that way you don't need to pay a bean to protect your computer (obviously except for the hardware firewall). :)

    Hope that helps

    I have windows xp firewall is it worth getting another firewall as these sites http://www.sygatetech.com/ http://www.grc.com/
    detect I have ports though they are appear closed they should be stealth.
    Do you recomend I download another firewall or just click on the link and download port monitor though I just want to make my ports stealth again to make PC safer.

    My ICMP is now open and WEB and IDENT closed they should all say blocked.

    I then did Stealth scan and found these closed

    WEB
    POP3
    IDENT
    Net Bios
    HTTPS
    Service Message Block
    SOCKS Proxy
    Web Proxy

    All the above should be blocked but appear closed so it says I am not fully protected how do I get them all blocked and close the one port that is open. Thank You for your help.
