    Does anyone know if there is a way to add this service to be blocked by the firewall? That is the only port that I show not being Stealthed by the firewall. Any help would be appreciated.

    Port 135? You got block Generic Host process, svhost.exe. Had to do the same with Sygate.

    Blocking Generic Host process will do the trick but a blanket deny for svchost may not be the best idea, it does of course run alot of services for windows that need internet access, things like NTP and DNS.

    Make a system wide rul blocking 135 is the best idea i can think of.

    If your not using a LAN or SMB file print services at home or any DCOM dependent apps then you may want to try this:

    Ive tested it and it does indeed stop svchost from listening on 135 RPC.
