        Do you have anykind of firewall installed? Zonealarm or anything that would block them BESIDES the OS?

            Those "intrusions" is probably your kazaa traffic. I'd suggest updating your Z A (I think the latest version says it's "Kazaa" traffic) then figuring out which port Z A needs open and open it. It needs two ports to let yolu know (ul and dl), I'd just open the dl to keep all those people away from my Pr0n. :D

              no i cant be that because kazaa isnt running because i cant use it cos the ports are closed but it was running last night even with the firewall on... but now all i keep getting is high priority intrusion alerts and kazaa ports closed.. luckily i was smart enougth to scan and got rid of the trojan horse and viruses.. so can u open ports manually?

                Ok, let me let you in on a little secret. Computers DO NOT close ports themselves. The only thing I can tell you is user error. Not to mention unless you were messing with registry or services or even possibly msconfig (downloadable for xp and 2k) then WINDOWS is not closing the ports. Firewall are designed to close ports. You can open the ports manually with zone alarm but other then that your ports should be wide open. Here's A quick question for you, when you started Kazaa did a little window pop up saying traffic was entering and exiting your computer? If it did and you choose to block it that was you Kazaa traffic.

                If you get it figured out and you like using kazaa here's what I'd suggest. Search the net and download two things, ad-aware, and msconfig for XP. Run kazaa then run ad-aware. It should find a WHOLE lotta spyware. Select all the boxes except save now (required program for Kazaa). Delete them, some may not be able to be deleted because kazaa needs them to run. K now throw the msconfig anywhere you want cause it's about to become your new best friend (I threw mine into the system32 folder). Go to the run command on the start menu and type "msconfig". Go to the start up tab and uncheck the save now box. Click apply then click ok. Restart your computer and a window will pop up saying you made changes yada yada yada. Check the box so it never shows up again then click ok.

                          Ok...you two are getting a little frustrating! Ace High. You need to do a little searching around to understand A) how P2P apps work and B) what freakin' close_wait means.

                          I can understand why Cyb3RSoldi3R misunderstood what you meant by closed ports cuz until you posted the info about close_wait I assumed that you meant not listening, which is what I believe Cyb3RSoldi3R thought you meant too judging from his/her/its responses.
                          perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

                              Some versions of Kazaa are known to have a trojan in them at download! Best to uninstall it and download Kazaa Lite, it has no ads, no gator junk, and runs clean. Do NOT accept any upgrades thugh if prompted. Just download kazaa lite and you're good to go.
