DNS server

I'm running WinXP sp3, I'm using Panda Internet security for firewall & anti-virus. I keep getting intrusion attempt from my firewall. In the eventlog from panda it list the DNS server IP address as the intruder. Are these DNS sever addresses part of windows or something added by something? Here is view of my IPconfig.

Honestly, unless you are manually adding DNS settings, the DNS Server should be set to your router (Gateway) and then the Router should be obtaining/resolving DNS for you via your Internet Provider, unless you are using something like OpenDNS (but that is still a manual change that you would need to make).

To me, this seems like something is doing this to you without your knowledge.

Sounds to me you have a virus/spyware.

Try running Malwarebytes.org, the freebie will scan and clean your system. I also recommend NOD32 by ESET. It is far superior to Panda. As for firewall, I just turn mine off. My router blocks attempts all the time.
