every single port was reported stealth, for two reasons, the main one being im running windows vista, of secondary consideration is i have a decent router firewall ;D
ok so the following is my pc:
asus M2N4-SLI, athlon X2 5000+ cpu, geforce 7600GT , 80gb MAXTOR SATAII hdd, 4gb ddr2 ram, silverstone edumon (google it and u'll find it!!!) sata dvd rw dual layer, 6x usb 2, and tv card (with video recorder ps2 etc)

Believe it or not, but the XP SP2 firewall is more than adequate for protecting against inbound attacks.  The only reason there's an issue is because either people turn it off, or they download infected junk from P2P networks which can then communicate outbound.  But in the latter case the user has chosen to run that program.
