Is this a Virus attack?

For the past 7 or 8 minutes I keep getting messages from Avast 4 reading as follows

"Avast! on access scanner message
Network Shield: Blocked DCOM Exploit attack from"

Each message (about 20 ) has 213.78, and 135/tcp in common all the other numbers changing with each message. Can anyone help please?

Thanks a lot lads for getting here so quickly. I used VoG`s DCOM diabler as it appeared to be the quickest and it has worked. Now Ill have a longer look at jeffers22 and Technotiger`s links. Thanks again for the help
