firewall drop code

Does anyone know how to obtain info from a line of XP firewall 'drop code'. Below is sample line (one of hundreds) interupted by my XP firewall.

2003-07-15 23:09:32 DROP TCP 80 25997 40 FA 3071083112 2058683791 33580 - - -

Thanks.... I had a read (very interesting)it is a bit beyond me at present. I was looking to find a way of establishing the addresses of these senders.

You need a traceroute program. Also XP firewall only stops connections INTO your pc. if something gets on pc EG from a disk/cd then it can dial out and XP firewall will not stop it.
I use Sygate Personnal firewall which stops all
unauthorised connections (in or out) and has a back trace facility in it by selecting the events in the traffic log and backtracing from there.

Loaded Sygate to night as you outlined and is up and running for the first time. Still to familiaris but looks good this far, thanks.
When connecting to a site etc, so far I am not ticking "remember my answer........." incase I would want to change my mind, any comment re this, (I will probably find out in time.)
