Just checked the way that link was modified on the post. Not what I was referring to exactly. Let me try another way....

From the link: "The RPC/DCOM exploit is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to gain access to the destination machine by
sending a malformed packet to the DCOM service. It uses the RPC TCP port 135.

How can I totally prevent this and what should I do?

- Make sure you have ALL security patches/updates from Microsoft.
- Use a firewall. Best is a router with hardware firewall.

This is constantly popping up.. Constantly!

You can disable the popup in Avast Network Shield provider"
