Now it respond.
But it give only a few ports, it does not check all the ports.
Is a site which is doing it? or a program?
I am not sure if I understand: a close port is actually a open port which is not active but every one can pass through it?

Hi it's the Hackerwatch site scanning your Pc.
An open port is Open.
It will say Secure if your port is secure and not open to attack.

How many ports does it list?

Well you can just log into your router to do that..

Just type the local URL into your browser..

It should be something along the lines of..

192.168.0.0
Or
192.168.1.1

Something like that, in that you will be faced with a menu find your ports and it will list which are open or closed.
