Thanks again Tony!
ZA is alerting about a port that I cannot find anything on. It's 4933, it is new and it's probably related to gnucleus, but if not, what if anyone knows? Kazaa port is still sounding off port 1214. I removed Kazaa and used spybot to get rid of anything else.
I would search through the thread to look for the post on Kazaa, but it is way too long and my two yr old took my glasses while I was sleeping and I CAN'T FIND THEM EITHER!!! To search through the thread would give me a headache! LOL
Is it normal for Windows Explorer to want to connect to the internet?
I've been getting these too, it totally blew me away, it doesn't sound good...

ZoneAlarm blocked an incoming data packet that was addressed to port 137 on another computer. The packet was either mistakenly or intentionally routed through your computer. The data packet was sent from port 137 on a computer whose IP address is 188.8.131.52.
Lori - It's very important to remember that if you're reading your firewall logs (or seeing alerts from your firewall) it simply means that your firewall is doing its' job - turning away un-wanted connections.
Relax a little.
In the case of ZA (when I used it), I turned the alert pop-ups off. Pete
Now that's funny!
A good site that you can use to find information on any given port can be found here:
It seems to be fairly thorough and up to date. A little slow to connect from my location in Texas, but it does the job nicely and is a must bookmark.
Thanks for the site!
