      Hi to all that posted help advice for me, and thank you very much.
      It turned out I had a couple of nasties in my computer which have been dealt with and eradicated, I am now up and running again!
      just for the record they where in the keygen for superantispyware!
      thanks again.

      This is a favourite trick used by virus writers, who know that someone prepared to use illegal methods is likely to ignore AV warnings.

      Glad your sorted now.
      If you want decent anti spy-wear then never , ever download from torrent or other places.
      Go and get yourself a decent paid for or free Anti virus program. My personal choice AVG 9 pro paid for.
      Free copy of SpywearBlaster
      Also Spybot_search & destroy
      Also Malwarebytes anti Malware

      good luck

      Clearly it seems that those couple of "nasties" are still on your system. Your best bet is to install the programs I posted earlier and run them. On second thoughts I think you should take your PC to a good PC repair shop and let them sort it out.
      Ports do NOT block or lock them selfs! So someone or something is doing it and its odds on virus...

      Re: port forwarding

      thanks for that joss, I have installed spywareblaster , probably as you responded! I am going to see if that raises anything, thanks again!
      I am not as thick as I sound, honest!! but how do I actually run spywareblaster?
      Also I have ran my a/v, eset, and that reports nothing!

      Spywareblaster actually protects your browsers more than anything.
      Install Malwarebytes and run that to scan your entire system also go and get a copy of AVG 9 free and try that as your AV

      Re: port forwarding

      No idea as to why. Make sure you have all the updates before scanning, check the settings too. Just for info what where the nasties you found?

      hi guys! I am now finding that all my ports are locked and unreachable!
      Where are you trying to reach them from? If you are using something like Shieldsup ( https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 ) this would be the proper response.
