Windows 7: How to block a port in 7?

I may want to invest in a new or used router. Most wired and wireless routers have built in hardware firewall, which is a lot better than most commercial software firewalls.

I don't use a router as they tend to overheat in my room. It's nice and warm in 'ere.

Runckle: you should have posted that in your first post,
how are we supposed to be able to help when you donīt tell us what firewall you are using ?

doesnīt Kaspersky have a setting to block all or specific ports ?
i donīt remember as i havenīt used KIS for a while.

if you donīt have any need to allow incoming connections, then just block ALL connections.

fx. iīm using Comodoīs firewall, and i got tired of all popups asking what to do, so i blocked ALL incoming connections...

firewall should be blocking ALL incoming traffic. Your sent traffic rules will allow the query to pass through.

To Block a specific port on Windows 7 (assuming you are using windows firewall) . Go to control panel, Select Administrative tools, Select Windows firewall with advanced security, Click on Inbound rules, click on "New Rule" in Action Pane, Click on Port then next, enter port then next etc. and you will create a new rule that will block access to the port you specified (it will be added to the list of rules currently displayed governing inbound traffic to your computer). You will find it in the list under the name you called it when you created it. Once completed test it by going to http://www.grc.com and scanning your port. It should show stealth mode.
