I can't seem to upload the photo - so here it is via a link to my facebook account. I am doing routine firewall log inspections and have noticed a significant increase in port scan from google. Thoughts?

If I were you, I'd download, install & run Malwarebytes, Avast AntiVirus and CCleaner just to be sure. Then, when I'm finished, I would uninstall them and delete my Prefetch folder in :C/Windows.
I don't think your computer is infected or anything. My impression is that this is just one of those ultra-intrusive Google operations.
Good luck!:)

Are you using any Google services or programs?

Even if you are not, it is possible that someone who had your IP address before was (you likely have a dynamic IP address from your ISP, so you might currently have an IP address that someone else had in the past, either recently or less recently).

Frankly, I would not really worry about it. But, if you do want to worry about, then as a start you do what Just_One_Question suggested or even post to the "Am I Infected?" forum.

Thanks for the feedback and ideas - all of the devices on my Client's network are clean - they have all been rigorously scanned w/ adwcleaner, malware-bytes-anti-rootkit, malware-bytes, and malware-bytes chameleon, and junk-ware remover. I also have VIPRE installed on all of the machines - and I prompted a full definitions update before queuing everything for a deep scan. I did all of this moments after finding the large number of hits from google. As for the IP address idea - this is a static IP address that my client has had for a long period of time - long before they hired my firm to perform their IT security. I was just curious as to other peoples thoughts on the large number of hits - which has never happened before in the three years I have been monitoring this firewall.
