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 ?

I'm using ZoneAlarm. I am going to do the online trojan scan on Nortons site

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.
