Does this thing have a name? What version of Windows are you using?

Software firewalls seem to give lots of warnings during P2P activity,
hardware ones seem to just block probes/attacks.
Try testing your PC for security at Gibson Research Shields Up,
you should show clean, if you don't you will get a guide as to
how to fix the vulnerabilities, then just keep
you trojan and virus scanners up to date.
