Windows 7: Port forwarding still working ? curious why ?

Port forwarding still working ? curious why ?

I have recently formatted and have a fresh install of windows 7 and utorrent.

I noticed a green tick in the bottom corner of utorrent, indicating my network config is already setup as it should be and was curious why?

I checked my router config and the 'old' rules are still there. i.e Firewall rules/services BUT they are for a different porn number. (Utorrent randomizes this port number when it does a fresh install)

Also, upon the fresh install I havent set up a static IP which to my knowledge is also required for port forwarding.

Why is everything 'working' so well with zero setup (and also some incorrect config) ? when in the past I've had to go through every one of these steps to get anything working.
