    I keep getting a message in nortain security center that says an intrusion attempt by YOUR-4DACD0EA75 was blocked but it keeps happening every second. Any idea what this is?

    Yes.. It seems to be a ddos attack from a bot using a hijacked server. I think it's trying to force install hijacking malware on your machine.
    Your best defence is probably pull the plug for a while and it will go away and annoy somebody else.
    I dug this out of my old server logs, but it doesn't give me much info... maybe it will throw some light for the more malware/java savvy people here?

    Now I may be completely off target here and all it is is some perfectly innocent system function trying to do what it does, and is triggering norton's alarms.

    I think you should run a portscan on localhost ( and see which ports are open and listening, investigating and closing anything that doesn't seem right.
    Also check network traffic in and out.. there may be a bot already installed and running, and norton is catching it's attempts to phone home for instructions....
