All i run is my router, no software firewall period.

Software firewalls are over-rated honestly.
Especially windows firewall which in XP and Vista at least, just caused issues.

Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!

All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet

Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system

Nice test :)

That's acheivable with a simple tweak.
And while it increases your security to the nth extent, it causses issues with networking such as PC discovery and software interactions over LAN.

Vista firewall control has probably done the tweak automatically when you've set the security level to high.

There's a few ways to do it, but the most common is disabling ICMP traffic responces via TCPIP.sys. That's an XP tweak, not sure if it's around with Vista as i won't touch it with a 10 foot barge pole. Windows 7 i never bothered even trying to tweak network settings as they seem excellent already.

I have just gone through Vista Firewall Control and i find no Low, Med, or High settings, I can allow incoming / outgoing or both connections for all applications, all my applications that need to update (eg) Vipre, CCleaner etc update fine.

It's been a long time since i used the ICMP tweak on XP, i stopped when i got a new router with a decent firewall.

If you've got ICMP traffic disabled in it's entirety then you'll have networking problems. LAN. Local. Not internet issues so yes your programs will update and work fine.

No ICMP traffic not disabled and all our Computers are networked and connect, Router Firewall is enabled.

This may be the answer as this needs to be enabled when my ISP was using DLM (dynamic line management) when i first started with my ISP
