    I run norton and I have high security set since I run servers occasionally and I only get alerts when they are valid, what type of alerts are you getting? and what type of stuff do you set it to pop up a warning for?

    I run it. I also get a lot of "alerts". Mostly "Back door / Trojan" stuff. At least one or two a day.

    Dude dont worry i get lots of scans every night, its jsut some LAme ass script kiddys that think they are hardcore Hackers showing off to there inapted friends saying "look at me iam a hacker i can use a trojan to hack into some one heheheh " in a dumb and dumber kinda voice you know what i meen ;)

    the most common trojan scanners, like sub7 and deep throat scans are nothign to worry about,

    jsut ignore the allerts and let them get on with it, also send in the log fine to your isp's abuse department and thoes that are scanning you will have there acounts desabled :D

    Yeah. At first it bothered me but, I just realized that it was no big deal. If it was something bad, it was being caught. Buncha punk kids. :p Damn, I must be getting old. :eek:

    My appologies to any "punk kids" here. No offence. :D
