i went onto the following website (http://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2) last night and tested my pc to see if it was vulnerable to open ports and everything was fine (all stealth rating) and then i somehow changed the configuration on my firewall (zonealarm) and tested this site again and my ports became open!
i am really scared because i dont knopw what i did to change it and i tried a few programs to block the ports again and i couldnt seem to fix the problem.
One thing that i didnt do which i read on a website today was to disable norton and then reinstall zonealarm...would this do the job? i doubt it personally/..will have to try when i get home.
any advise you can give me would help.
i am running XP with all the latest updates and my XP firewall is off as ive been using zonealarm and everything was fine and dandy....now its stuffed in terms of how i am being protected.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone willing to help to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org asap i would be so grateful.
