How did you do an online scan using A²

Well all my ports are closed with no problems, I am on Win XP SP2. I don't know much about ME so perhaps someone else can help, but are all your security patches up to date. The VB Script is not a problem.

swanny3, do you have a firewall installed? If you have, it can't be configured correctly as no ports should be showing.

If you haven't got a firewall, I'd download and install one, Zonealarm is quite good and automaticaly stealths all your ports.


P.S.You can download Zonealarm from here click here

When you do an online scan with A² it tells you to turn your firewall Off. Did you do that ? and also make sure you are using Inrenet Explorer
