Virus attack/closed ports?

September 26, 2010 at 04:45:49
Specs: Windows Vista
alright, awhile back, say a month ago, i was downloading music, and i guess one of the files was a virus, and it opened up all the programs it could on my computer (i.e "buy this to remove this") and i got attacked hardcore, so i have spent the past month cleaning it up by myself, i havent found any answers online, ive just downloaded every possible virus scanner, prober, regdat, everything to clean my system up, well i think ive got it cleaned for the most part, im not sure though, id love to find out..any help on that?? but back on topic, im a gamer, avid, hardcore whatever, and after this attack, i found that i couldnt connect to my online games or ventrilo... but i could skype, msn, and surf just fine, and ive redownloaded and installed these games, and it still says it cant connect to the internet, for every single game... so im taking a shot in the dark and saying my ports are closed, now my question is, how do i open up the ports i need, using command prompt or something else... and if possible opening up more then one, because for one such game i need 12000-12999 lol and i dont want to do it one by one... so if you guys could offer any help, id greatly appreciate it :)

couple of questions to get the ball rolling. I assume that you have checked to make sure that the virus that got installed didn't change your proxy? this is often overlooked and a possible explaination?

secondly i assume that the part that is blocking these ports is a firewall. if that is the case you can do the following:
see this reference:

or manually open them
