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.

How are the machines connected to the net, wired, wireless? Are you behind a router, or using a DSL box?

Very often the results that you get from the Shields Up reflect what is actually happening in the router rather than the machines behind it. The router has the public address while the machines behind it have private ones. There is usually an IP address provided on the site that you can compare to the addresses of your machines.

You can check the setup in the router to see if the settings for each machine is the same or slightly different. I was able to set one of my machines as being under maximum protection while the other was DMZ. Whether this would explain the difference in the results, I'm not sure.

Information on the ports and what they do:

port 135: http://www.speedguide.net/port.php?port=135

port 139: http://www.speedguide.net/port.php?port=139

port 445: http://www.speedguide.net/port.php?port=445

notice that all three ports are related.

My suggestion is to follow the following directions: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Just to make sure. Please be patient when waiting for your log to be reviewed.
