LANguard scan results

I just got the new version of GFI LANguard.  When I scan it says that
every computer has TCP port 80, 119, 1080, and 8080 is open.  When I
scan with several other tools I get different and more accurate results.
These ports do not appear to actually be open. Does anyone know how to
prevent LANguard from reporting these inaccurate results?

I know that GFI LANguard can determine the difference between XP and 
2000 machines.  I believe that it will detect 95/98/ME too.  The biggest

problem is that it is expensive.  They do, however, offer a demo version

that will let you scan up to 25 machines at a time.  Take a look at

I have been given the task to scan for hosts that are running Windows
the network. I have tried scanning with Nmap and Nessus, however they
distinguish the hosts between 95/98/ME. I was wondering if anyone has
across a tool that is able to detect Win95 hosts on the network.

Thanks for your help.
