Not quite sure whats trying 2 access ur pc but the fact that your getting the pop ups means that your safe as the attempt to get in is being blocked. U keep getting the message as its something different everytime so hasn't been remembered by NIS. Annoying yes but at least your pcs safe.

Probably worth scanning ur pc 4 spyware / malware and virus / trojans just in case theres something nasty on your pc thats causing this 2 happen.

Other than that I think you'll have 2 wait for some1 else 2 help ya out here

It is just the intrusion detection feature notifying you when it blocks connections.The first thing to do is to run Live Update and make sure your product is fully up to date. Then open the Internet security control panel and select the Intrusion Detection tab and click on "configure" .Remove the tick from the "Notify me every time intrusion detection blocks a connection" and that should make the alerts stop.

All that is happening is that Norton is doing it's job of protecting your's just telling you that it is every time it does, so you don't need to worry about being hacked.

It's also well worth running scans for adware/spyware etc as Completealias suggests as a precaution and try the automated support assistant at Symantec click here to check for any problems with your Internet Security suite.

I agree with gudgulf, scan your drive for ad aware, you might have something on your drive that someone is attempting to make contact with. Norton is doing it's job by blocking the intruder. It might be a good idea to scan your drive with Norton too.

I would like to thank you for the quick reply i received from you.I have done what (gudgulf) recommend.

I scan my pc for adaware,spyware, remove the tick

from the "Notify me every time intrusion detection blocks a connection" .

So far it does work,thank you from all the heart.I haven't received not even one more alert after that.

God bless you.
Again thank you so much.
My kindest regards
