Still the Windows Firewall might be blocking them check the Microsoft KB i referred and add those Ports to Windows Firewall exception list.

Ok lets go back to basics

The best way to test if you have a firewall issue is to turn the firewall off completely

I assume since you have re-installed windows to a factory install you only have the windows firewall in place. If this is correct go into the control panel and disable the firewall.

If everything now works you need to set up the firewall to open the ports you require to work.

One thing to watch is that a lot of systems that come with a restore to factory settings also install some form of internet security suite that includes a firewall element. Check your system documentation and your control panel for entries from the likes of macaffe and Norton and if present uninstall or disable at lest the firewall
