    I have tested my security at that Gibson site and I have passed with flying colors. All my ports seem to be invisible.
    But then I had turned of Zone alarm firewall and tested again.
    Gess what !!! I had the same excellent results , all ports invisible. What the heck is going on here?
    Either that Gibson shieldsup test is completely inaccurate or … I don’t know what

    You have to turn off the "Start with Windows" option, reboot, then retest.
     
  5. You may still have your windows firewall on...or your ISP may have a FW

    The solution could probably be in restarting.I will try that.

    I thought the vsmon.exe in ZA still runs even if ZA doesn`t start with Windows? I could be wrong. ;)

    That's why you set it to not start with windows and reboot.
