It's probably due to some program like a virus scanner that's installed and
running on each system that is acting like a local proxy. Those ports
aren't really open to the external world but just locally on the box.

Subject: 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?
