For the past two weeks my firewall is under attack every few minutes, i get this message ( F30002 DCE/RPC DCOM buffer overflow exploit attempt detected ) sometimes with svchost.exe Application Name, could this be some sort of virus causing this AVG cant find anything ??

You are being scanned by one of the many RPC viruses on another PC.

1) Do you have the MS Patch for this installed? Only applicable if you are running one of the folowing

Windows NT® 4.0
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Server? 2003

Use Windows Update to check for the patch.

2) Ignore the alerts and keep AVG up to date.
