Norton's firewall is stopping attacks from what it thinks is an infected PC called Peter's Notebook.  It seems to think that the source is on your local network.  Your PC is not infected and you can either tell Norton to stop telling you about the attacks or get Peter to get his notebook scanned for viruses.  If is not part of your local network then your router's firewall needs to be turned on.


If you are still worried then post your FRST and Addition files per Step 3 of the instructions: http://www.geekstogo...before-posting/
