Have you enabled the XP firewall?  Do this and try to run another scan of all ports at grc.com and see what comes up.
If I enable the XP Firewall, won't that block most of my traffic? I've seen an XP Firewall in action once, and it didn't last long. Remember, I must still be able to use my intranet. ::)

  It will not hurt to try it.  I would hate to see your computer compromised by hackers.  Check out www.eeye.com for the NT security risks --- also affects XP and 2000 which are both based on NT code

Could you be a bit more specific in the url? I can't find any 'search-'option on the site so I wouldn't know where to look. :-\

True, but I always like to shoot for the moon even if I hit the woodpile.   ;)

It is great that we are all unique individuals and not mindless robots.  My favorite classic movie is "Its a Wonderful Life"

Good point and to a cat their eyes are especially important -- hence Copycat  ;)

Yes, but cats can almost close their eyes and still have a good view, whereas with humans that's impossible. 8)

Copycat, maybe you should start a new thread about "Why Cats Are Great"?  I really like cats.   ;D
