AS soon as i connect to the internet (explorer or Outlook express) I am bombarded by the following message.

Remote system is trying to access your computer

Echo Request (8)
ECHO REquest (8)

The address changes almost every time,i tell the firewall to block which it does.I am then told the same message with a diffrent address.
Help what should I do

Turn off the notifications in the firewall software. The firewall is doing it's job blocking access.

Oh, and do a scan of your computer with either Adaware or Spybot to remove any spyware that might be on your system.
