I have quite a big problem.
Since a few months I use Adsl.
And recently I heard from my father that his university ( we got adsl with some advertisement from the university) received a complaint from Switzerland that there is illegal portscanning from my computer. the university says I must stop it otherwise they will shut down my connection. And when I visit websites like http://www.grisoft.com, http://www.norton.com, http://www.mcafee.com and many other websites from antivirusesoftware I get a white background and then in blue letters I get al the files I downloaded from kazaa emule and other and also files which I'm sure I didn't downloaded. So after I got the free Avg virus edition these virusses were found on my computer:
Bagle.J
TR/Smal.Dld.Ah
Trojan Horse-TR/Swizzor.C.Dld.4
BDS/Agobot.241664
BDS/NetDevil.14.Srv
W32/Hantaner
TR/Ncase.A3
................A2
So my question is:
Is my computer save now from portscanning?
If not what should I do?
And how can I prevent it from happening again?

Thanks in advance

Mister A

P.s. Excuse me for my bad english :(

First of all, welome to OZZU.
Second, please do not hit the submit button multiple times. I had to remove two duplicates of this post. Hitting submit once is enough. Given the condition of your computer, it may take a few seconds for your post to submit.
Third, until you get rid of all your peer-to-peer programs like "kazaa, emule and others" you are wide open to have all the portscanning and viruses and trojans come your way. Get rid of them and forget they existed.

You caused your own problems by having them.

Sorry 'bout that Ragnar78. When I was deleting them all three were empty. You must have posted while I was in the process.
