I was on my laptop as usual when norton (yay norton!!!) pops up with this message.

"Risk name: NMap Xmas Scan
Attacking computer:
Destination Address: OWNER-VAIO ( 192.xxx.x.xx,(My IP address) 61425)
Source Address:
Traffic Description: TCP, Port 51000"

"Network traffic from matches the signature of a known attack. The attack was resulted from System..."

A. Should i be worried
B. Should block port 51000
C. And don't yell at me for this but i have Norton 2010 (about to expire), AVG 9 (not the free version) Microsoft security essentials (Surprisingly really good) and Threatfire (sucks, never detects anything) running at the same time flawlessly.My laptop has no problem running them at the same time and often catches things other programs don't.Will any of those programs do a effective job of stopping intrusions?

You should not have 2 AV's
That could be part of your problem

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
