Well, I've shut down XP and booted into Windows 7.
Under Win7 I'm using the Windows firewall instead of Comodo and have not configured it for file sharing with the laptop.

Shields Up = all stealthed
PCFlank Quick test = 135, 137, 138, 139 closed
PCFlank Stealth test = stealthed
PCFlank advanced port test = 137, 138, 139 closed

I've confused myself now!
Do these results mean that GRC is testing my router hardware firewall whereas PCFlank is somehow able to see my network ports??

I know visible but closed ports are not really a great risk but PCFlank is giving a warning whereas GRC says they are stealthed????
