help for the tech-unsavvy.... so the firewall signalled an attempt
to access my computer. Haven't done this in awhile - but where do I go to see if the groping computer is registered? I know, its most often telecommunication firms (esp telephone) - and harmless. Just want to check it out - but can't remember where to go to do this.

Thanks.
