If I knew your IP address (which bad people will find soon enough by randomly scanning a range of ip addresses) - I could open a command prompt on your pc by the telnet command - put whatever files I want to on your hard drive via the ftp command - and run a web server on Port 80.
You're screwed dude.
Did you mean to run these services (http/ftp/telnet) on your PC?
Try: http://127.0.0.1 (Your PC) to see if a web page is displayed.
Since port 135, 137, and 139 are not open - I suspect it's your router/modem instead of your PC reporting these open port values.
Maybe it is the router supplied by your ISP running these and I would contact them ASAP to close the ports. Ask them if you can replace their router with a router of your own like a linksys.

The logmein software you have loaded could also be listening to those ports. Could be normal - but anything that leaves you that open is not good and could be bypassed.

So, what would you recommed me to do to disable these ports?
Thanks for the post. I disabled the servies as you mentioned above, but what the strange thing was, I couldnt disable the telnet service. The telnet was already disabled. But one telephony service is still running, "which enables a remote user to log on to this computer and run programs, and supports various TCP/IP Telnet" is what mentioned in the properties of that telephony service. If I stop this service does the connection to internet stops completely?
Please help me with this tooo!!
