Thank you very much for your replies. My O/S is W7. I'll run the series of tests. Thank you again.

I am reading this bok ,' The Girl Who Played With Fire!' and its about firewall and hacking!Got worried. But the firewalls on both of my computers are turned on and I believe the router firewall haelps. I 'll run the tests though.
