Hi, I would suggest you use ZoneAlarm instead, then you can run your pc completely stealthed - invisible to the internet.

ps don't forget AVG click here and Ad-Aware click here both free.

From what I remember of Sygate you should be able to manually block those ports, maybe someone can check were you can do that. I can't check 'cos I don't run Windows.

There is a downloadable user guide: click here It should tell you there.

Download free version of zonealarm, once this is installed download and run "Shields up" this will tell you which ports are open an which are stealthed, and can resolve the issues you have. hth.
