Question:

Somebody seems to be trying to hack my computer coz I've been recieving
warnings like this from Avast! Network Shield -
Network shield blocked DCOM exploit attack from IP xxx.xxx.xxx
    What should I do? Is there a way I can communicate with the person? How can I permanently stop this guy from trying to connect to my computer?

--------- Many of us never install a firewall we feel its not required, but guys its the greatest ever risk u take with ur pc! Although Xp has a firewall, (u need Sp-2 installed for that) But windows firewall u know is just like Windows, falls down any time!!... and  Windows 98,2000,Me... as far i  know  don't have firewalls from windows!!
    Also when u run a program direct connect to the internet, like media player, winamp, etc, such software have their ports always open!!

       So friend u r urself giving a invitation to the hacker to hack ur pc!
       Do u know that maximum no.of hacking happens at lan level??? other users easily get access in ur pc, if its not firewalled!!

Don't Worry the Solution is here!!

Get the latest updates for windows by visiting the microsoft site.
Alternately if you have xp sp2 you can install that.

or

you can use visualzone5.7 .
