It's related to your internet security suite from Tesco/F-Secure. As you can see from the log, about half of the entries belong to this software package. I never liked these bundles. I recommend uninstalling it completely and use the below antivirus and firewall software instead:

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/us/frt/0
http://www.zonelabs.com

Both have free versions for personal use. Download them and then disconnect from the internet (pull the cable or turn off the router). Then uninstall F-Secure via the Add/Remove Programs panel. Restart the computer and make sure that this folder is gone by now -> C:\Program Files\Tesco Internet Security\ If it still exists, delete it. Then install AVG Antivirus and ZoneAlarm Firewall.

Any improvement?

Yeah!

Much better thanks.

Zonealarm firewall is only a 15 day trial though, is this right?

Although is the AVG package a firewall too.....?

There's a free edition. Uninstall the one you have there.

They like hiding it. Here is the direct link for the free edition :)
