Windows 7: 3 Ports Opened!

09 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
3 Ports Opened!

I went to the site ShieldsUP! and found 3 ports opened! On the other hand, my 2nd computer shows no ports opened, only stealth/closed. How come!? I had just done a clean install of Windows 7 two days ago and I always have my firewall and antivirus on.

139 and 445 are NetBios ports (file sharing) not sure about 135, I would imagine it is something similar though, but the stealth port; I don't have a clue
