open ports

I have run the check security option on Norton 2005 which runs a system check from the symantec website.

The check lists 3 ports that are open.

How can I close/stealth these ports?

Why hasn't norton internet security closed them?

Thanks in advance

The ports are:-
ICMP PING
22 SSH
80 HTTP

80 needs to be open for IE to connect to the net,idealy it should be stealthed,port 22 i think is a SSH remote login port or so it says on the net i would assume this should be stealthed as well not sure if it should be open tho.

Ok this is confusing

The grc website says all my ports are stealth.

Symantec website says some ports are open.

How do I know which is right?
