One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection attempts to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.

All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.
Testing the ports shows this for every port:

This is one of those utilities that I check now and again. So far, each time I have checked it has declared that I am completely stealthed, so I am quite pleased.

Full stealth just like all the other times

But I think you'd have to put your computer into the router's DMZ to get an accurate scan, else wise it just gets blocked by the router (yay.)
