    I have installed zonealarm free edition. That was 3 days ago. Since then i have had 6753 and counting intrusions blocked via inboud protection. Is this a normal amount? Just wanted to ask.

    Thanks for views and replies.:)

    my firewall says it blocked 1286 attacks in 7 days, so I'd say your number is high?

    I will guess it is picking up every ping going on. If you are on cable then your pick up all the added junk and ZA see's it so you get the hits showing up.
    If you had a router then it would stop most things there so ZA would never see it.

    Run the Shields UP! test here.

    If your ports are all closed then your doing great.
    Test all service ports and and you should get Stealth or a perfect "TruStealth" rating if all ports are Stealth.
    If you do get a perfect "TruStealth" rating then no one can see your PC
