    That is why I posted it. It seems like all computer with Win Me or Win XP will have those ports open. It has not affected anything Yet so I am happy I did this but also you have to go to msconfig and go to services and disable from starting back up also.. Then you are alittle safer.

    Yes, it is very good practice to disable UPnP, along with other vulnerable and unneccesary ports.
