My son downloaded videos from a website and downloaded utorrent to download them. I'm not very comfortable with p2p transfers and having any ports open for people to get into my pc. I deleted the utorrent program but i want to make sure that any ports it opened are closed up and i'm still not a seed for others to download from. Does anyone know how to make sure all traces of this program are deleted and all ports are closed?

Many firewalls can do that for you. There should be a list with programs that is allowed. You can dis-allow these programs from there.

Surf over to GRC and locate the "Shields Up" test.
It will scan your IP address and report the status of your ports.

If it says True Stealth or All Ports Closed you can sleep well.
If any are open just post back and we'll help you get 'em closed.
