Ports open on router

I ran an online security check with Symantic, the results of which said my ports 80 and ICMP Ping were open. Should I be concerned?

TIA

Nothing to worry about; Port80 is an alternative for http and ICMP Pings are simply the means of checking if a user is still on the site.

If you have a good Antivirus program and windows firewall activated and combine these with common sense you will be ok.
