TCPview from www.sysinternals.com is a good application to discover which is connecting to what (port) in your computer.

I mean, using ScanPort I found this suspect line:

Port 1025 - blackjack;network blackjack

I think that is why I can´t connect in any webmail or messenger.

Blackjack seems to be a cassino card game...

Port 1025 - blackjack;network blackjack

As Spiritsongs said (How do you know you have "port 1025 blackjack" ?) you didn't answer and I haven't heard of this port 'hijack' rather than 'blackjack' ?

You still don't appear to have a firewall and when you are suggesting you have some port hijacking an active firewall that can provide protection against unauthorised outbound internet connections is almost a must. Not only that if you are fighting any form of malware that connects to the internet as fast as you deal with something another could be taking its place.

You could also visit sysinternals.com and get TCPview which shows TCP connections, the process initiating it and also lists the ports they use. If the tool doesn't give this information then I suggest you try it. The service svchost.exe is commonly used by many programs/processes, it is s service host, but importantly you need to ensure that it is the correct svchost.exe.

I have a bit of advice.
Running a system that's totally out of date, not using a firewall and not using any anti-virus,
gives you a totally trashed system.
Reformat your Hard Drive and start from scratch.
Before you start over, download a good AV program like avast! and a Firewall program like Zone Alarm.
Put these two programs on a CD
Now format your HD and re-install windows, Install your Anti virus and Firewall programs and then
log onto the net and update your system.
Once that's done, let us know if you still have the same problems.   I highly doubt you will.  :)

Glad your problem is solved.  :)
Treating your machine more safety from now on is a much better and easier choice than having to restore your whole system.  ;D
