I found an issue with a game i play called silkroad online. When I try to start the game it tries to auto update but it can't and says that it is probably down or under examination. I looked this error message up and usually deals with blocked ports. The only problem is that I have all my ports open. On my windows firewall I had the program under exceptions and it worked fine. At the moment the firewall is completely off and I still can't play. I also have the computer connect through a router and all ports are open and used to work. I also tried putting it in dmz with no luck. I am guessing that some of the programs I was suggested to install on my pc might have a firewall type feature that blocks some ports. The ones I did install were spybots search and destroy I thought its immunise feature was suspect but when i undo'ed it, the situation did not change. I also installed ad-aware se but i am not sure what other settings that could block.
My issue is that I have blocked ports that shouldn't be blocked and I don't know where to start to fix them.
Any help is appreciated.
