These are NOT port attacks. Norton and ZoneAlrms are top of the list for *cough* alerts *cough* that are nothing to do with hacking, this is one of the reasons why I do not use any firewall. Turn off the alerts, you will never get hacked on a home computer. The 'alerts' are merely computers handshacking.

i was worried as it has happened 3 times, in last 2 days. So what is the cause of not being able to get on to net? i leave comp on, but turn B/Band to stand by. It has not done this before thank you for your reply i would like to know why i have these probs just lately bye
