Go here. It will identify your open ports and help you close them.

Some ports need to remain open if you want connectivity to the web. Verify the port and it's operation before closing it. Otherwise you may be back asking us why something does not work. It will be nearly impossible to figure out that you closed a port and therefore disabled that application.
