Zone Alarm has blocked 5,000 intrusions since I turned on my computer a few
minutes ago. This seems an inordinate number of intrusions to me and I
wondered whether it is 'normal' activity. The intrusions seem to have
stopped now but something similar was hapening yesterday evening.

I run Windows XP Pro with AVG, AdAware, Spybot and Spyware Blaster. I
connect via NTL broadband through a simple router.

According to the alert log most of the intrusions are from
(DNS) but as a non-techie I do not know what this means.

Can I rest assured that this is part of normal PC life or should I worry
that my computer is being targeted?
