hi there pal,
could you let me know a little more details,like the OS you are running and the kind of network you are having,or is it just one computer hooked to the net..if so i could help you..
now about trojans and backdoors..as far as i know a trojan or backdoor never just comes by and sit in your computer..it has to planted there either by someone or a program..maybe you are downloading a lot of materials from sites who's repute is questionable..so be careful about your downloads..a good antivirus like norton will yell when it sees sub seven..or maybe a friend of yours who just wants to play a prank on you has out it there..
i guess that is all the information i can provide for now..take care pal

Help is at hand.
First up you need a trojan remover.
www.158inc.com/framez.html and go to the appz 2 section.
Get the Cleaner [it's under protection] and this should detect any trojans in your system.
Port scan's etc are the norm so dont worry too much, just block their ip adress through your firewall.
I assume you are running Windows so get HackTracer from www.sharptechnology.com which will log all hack attempts on your computer.
Im pretty sure youre gonna get offered a lot of help on this subject so Ill leave you with that.
Hope this help's.

Ennis, does "HackTracer" work along side a firewall like ZA or Tiny, or does it replace them?

It works alongside your firewall.

I would see if theres any unaccountable outbound/inbound connections on your machine. If there is, setup a packet sniffer to see what's going on..
Port probes dont mean you're getting hacked.
Check for a listening port on 27374, 1337, 31337 etc.
Doesn't seem like a major concern, unless your machines infected.

Let us know what OS your running so we could at least help U.
If your running a lan or not so we could better help U here on AO
Sanriver why tried to suck up ? Let's help the noob.
AO is security related right. So what if he doesn't know he's come to the right place, I sure AO would agree
