Conky just showed me I have 3 outbound ports (it was 8 at one point) on my system. nmap returned the following:

Is this normal? I'm particularly concerned about port 445-the microsoft-ds service. *Puts on tinfoil hat.* I don't have any reason that I'm aware of to have open ports. I'm not a gamer, I don't connect anywhere remotely, and I don't remember doing anything that would open any ports.
Thanks for any advice! I'm sort of freaking out right now.
