PC is behaving as though a firewall is blocking incoming queries, but I have uninstalled and/or disabled all that I know of (Zone Alarm uninstalled, Windows firewall disabled, etc).  Is there a way to determine if there is a firewall running that I don't know about?  Thanks.

Try going to www.grc.com and using their ShieldsUP! web page to see what ports your computer has open.
