    I formerly used Windows Defender and Windows Firewall on my Windows 7 laptop but recently upgraded to Norton IS 2011.

    After installing NIS, I ran GRC shields up and it said my port 554 was open. When I had Windows Firewall on I was completely Stealth, now Norton has opened up one of my ports and I do not know why, or even how to close it. The Norton forums are very non-specific.

    Am I overreacting? I am annoyed that I spent so much money and now feel less secure.

    Thanks, from a noobie.

    Thanks for the link, but I guess I'm an idiot because I do not understand how to "turn off" Windows Media Player from within Norton. I don't even use WMP for anything.

    Since I could not find any step-by-step instructions, I think I may just uninstall NIS rather than having open ports.

    Yes, this is a fine bargain thanks, Thankful.
    What I can't understand is that if it's available as an electronic download/paymment, then why is it limited to US customers, since I feel one's
    credit/debit card could make the necessary currency conversion?
    Guess things are just different prices in various countries?
