    remember that a lot of these wont be proper virii, a lot will just be popup generators etc.

    The fact that AVG is catching them is a good thing

    what you have to take into concideration is that there are worms that look for computers to infect.

    If left unprotected you can be infected with the Sasser worm within 30 seconds (fastest i've seen).

    These hits could be a worm accessing your computer on an open port but your software firewall has picked this and asked you to respond or if it knows what it is, it has blocked access.

    personally using panda platinum 2006, never had a problem with a single virus or worm since! plus also have a router, which acts as a great hardware firewall!

    also see how your exsisting firewall is acting using this site here - ShieldsUP!
