    As you told that you are not able to open the port after a severe attack of virus which you have downloaded through the internet. I want to suggest you to run an anti virus to that particular file this scanning of the antivirus will remove all the infection done by the software. Also remember that the spyware software should be updated. I think this will be helpful to you to get the desired solution.try doing this.

    I think the following might be helpful to you to get the desired solution as you want to open the port you are using with the command prompt. Try doing this:
    • First of all open the command prompt using run option.
    • After that use attrib command to do the same.
    • After this again open the run and type drive letter and you will get f: attrib/all and follow the commands.

    I think this problem is related to the bad DCOM setting which might be destroyed by the virus attack. So to fix the issue you need to go through the following points:
    • First of all open the run and type cmd to open the command prompt.
    • After this open another run and open DCOMCNFG which open the component services.
    • After this expand the component services and the computers.
    • Now right click on the properties which open the properties for my computer and then click on the default properties.
    • Make sure that the default authentication level should be connected and default impersonation level should be identified.
