After a fresh install - uninsatall 188.8.131.529 - install of 184.108.40.2069
a new listening port is now appeared that was not there before
in previous version. In Active Connections svchost.exe is now
listening under TCP and 135.
It does appear blocked, and shields up all green. The obvious question
is why did this suddenly appear after the upgrade? And how to trun it off?
You can take a look with tcpview, but it should just show svchost listening to epmap. You can look up epmap with Google for more information on what it is doing. I have had it listening all along (in Vista)-what OS are you using? It is used for internal communication and there is no problem blocking it from listening for internet access.
