    Does anyone know where I can find a list of the critical ports that should be closed on my PC? I'm also not sure how to close them. If possible I'd like a little advice on that.

    Thank-you!

    Depends on the firewall you use & depends what you use your computer for but imho block the following 1-1024~3389

    ---------------------------

    do not block the following.

    20~21~22 ftp "optional"
    53 dns {web browser}
    80 http {web browser}
    443 HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) {web browser}
    ---------------------------

    for max security If all you do is serf the web with your pc block all {1-65535} but 53~80~443

    edit: changed ftp port list
