Helkern attack-Defender Pro AV

I'm new here **Waves wildly** so first let me start by saying hi. And second let me say I'm not sure if this has been posted so if it has I apologize for reposting.

But I have Windows 2000. (a barbarian yes). And I just installed a new AV called Defender Pro, switching from Norton Internet Security because my Norton needed to be updated and I couldnt do it yet, so I got this Defender Pro and installed it. It seems to come with about 15 different internet security programs, BUT A MAJOR CONCERN is that since I installed it yesterday, with frequent regularity I've been getting a "Helkern Attack" warning. It says:

You computer has been attacked from (IP ADDRESS HERE). Attack: Helkern. The attack was sucessfully repulsed.

Now I know it says it was sucessfully repulsed so yay for me. :laugh: But I'm worried because it's happening almost every hour at times. I just installed this yesterday and my log has it appearing 8 times. With Norton Internet Security I NEVER got this before. In fact I think in the month I had it, I only got a virus warning three times. With Defender Pro I'm getting Helkern attacks 8 times in 24 hours.

Should I be worried. I dont know anything about a Helkern attack or the quality of Defender Pro in relation to Norton.

Is my computer under attack. Is Neo tryin to get me in the matrix? Or should I not be worried?

Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
