    I ran a security check on Nortons site and apparantly all of my ports are in stealth mode except port 5000. How do i put that port in stealth mode?

    Are you using a firewall ? Which one ? Have you done any virus/trojan scans other than your operating systems antivirus program ?

    Good idea as trojans are notorious for opening ports..

    So, is there any way to close that port or make it in stealth?

    Open Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services, and in services look for: SSDP Discovery Service }Once you found it, double click, notice there is a stop tab at the bottom somewhere, click on it, and Disable it where it says: Startup Type

    reboot and run the check.

    Mobo, FYI Virus Status: Safe!
    Your computer is free of known viruses and Trojan horses.

    And the security scan:

    Security Status: Safe!
    You are protected against most common security threats.

    Thanks for your help. Also thanks TOGG for your link.
