OK I'm now working on the Laptop. Have carried out both tests. AuditmyPC reports that I have no open ports. Shields up reports: File sharing - all shielded Common Ports - perfect TRuestealth All service ports - perfect trustealth
I would understand these results to suggest that the laptop can not be "got at" from outside. Are there any checks I can do to ensure that the Laptop is not trying to get through to the internet on its own?, ie it already has some sort of problem and is trying to connect - would Norton on the desktop stop it. I am on cable broadband.
Thanks for all the help so far
