Simple trick to be safe
I set up my router to send any unrequested packets to the default server. However, there's no machine at that address.
So not only am all my ports showing up as "stealthed", the requests all end up in the big bit bucket in the sky.
Read your router's manual, it's a simple solution to protect your PC. I use Zone Alarm to give certain programs permission to contact the Internet, everyone else is just plain out of luck!!
