    > - Windows oriented, keep click on Shields Up!, "All
                Service Ports". Scans first 1024 ports, the privileged
                ports plus some unprivileged ports Windows commonly
                opens. You should recognize all open ports and know what
                program is listening on them.

    Search Google for "port scan vulnerabilities" (without the quotes) for
           additional possibilites. Asking a friend to do a nmap or
           Nessus scan are also possibilities.
