    Default Hidden Internet Server

    Hello, I'm a Zone Alarm user and I visited a couple of sites to check my security, and got these results:
    I visited GRC.com and got this result:
    Attempting connection to your computer.
    .
    .

    Shields UP! is now attempting to contact the Hidden Internet Server within your PC. It is likely that no one has told you that your own personal computer may now be functioning as an Internet Server with neither your knowledge nor your permission. And that it may be serving up all or many of your personal files for reading, writing, modification and even deletion by anyone, anywhere, on the Internet!
    How can I get rid of this hidden internet server?

    These are the results I got from PC Flank:

    Stealth Test:
    Packet' type Status
    TCP "ping"
    non-stealthed
    TCP NULL
    non-stealthed
    TCP FIN
    non-stealthed
    TCP XMAS
    non-stealthed
    UDP
    non-stealthed
    Browser Test:

    Cookies check: Your computer may save special cookies on your hard drive that have the purpose of directing advertising or finding out your habits while web surfing.

    Referrer check: While visiting web sites your browser reveals private information (called 'referrer') about previous sites you have visited

    The solution I was given to all this, was to use a firewall! I thought that was why I bought ZA?

    I've also tried blocking UDP:5355 (which appears in my little ZA panel) but it's still there, as is something called "server driver".




    I would seriously appreciate some help to rectify these problems.

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Basic
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
