    I continue to receive Window Messaging spam messages even though the WIndows Messaging service is disabled, I'm behind a router/firewall (BEFSR41), and there are no open ports (one PORT is stealthed, 113). ANy suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

  3. Block UDP ports 1026, 1027 and 1028. These are Messaging "back doors".

    Daisywheel,

    Go to www.grc.com and make sure!! Any port can be an entry, that is why they are called ports!

    Good Luck!

    I would call them ports of entry
    Because any program/hacker would always try to get into your computer through these ports of entry.
