socks port open ??

Hello all you clever people out there. I'm a complete novice so I need help !
Apparently I may have a socks port open on my computer - whatever that is !? and I understand this is not good ... so ... how do I close it ??
Many thanks in anticipation

Go here click here and run the scans. They will tell you which ports, if any, are open.

Hello Jackcoms ..... thanks for the advice ... a very comprehensive means of checking if ports are open ... but
.... how do you close a specific port ?

Install a firewall

OK yes thank you .... but what if I have accidentally told the firewall to allow access to a port that I shouldn't of ?

Reverse your decision and "tell" the firewall to block that port.
