Firewall

Does anyone understand the ins and out of McAfee Personal Firewall Plus? I have AOL Broadband and McAfee PFP. Today alone, I have had 1024 notifications that a particular computer has tried to access mine - always virtually the same IP address and host name, and always the same system port (135.) If I do a McAfee trace on the address it comes back as AOL being the registrant and network. McAfee Help Line refers me to AOL and AOL haven't a clue! I've turned off the pop-up alert advisor in McAfee because it was popping up every 10-20 seconds. (In the time it's taken to type this, the number has gone up to 1046.) Surely this can't be right. Any clues?

You've done the right thing in turning off the pop-up alert.Now you should just forget about it.After all,your firewall is working fine,there no point in worrying about it.
