I am sick of spammers and those stupid programs that find your open ports to launch ad ware on my machine. Well Norton does a pretty good job at finding some of these people, which makes me want to retaliate with spam of my own. So any help. And can anyone tell me which ports I can close on my firewall that doesn't make surfing the net a pain in the butt. I seen something like 8 or 9 ports that are "commonly" used by webpages, but which ones could I close to stop these ad ware attacks. I have so much junk on my little laptop pretty soon I wont be able to do anything on but stop spam and ad ware on it.
