I think...
Just installed Zone Alarm Pro, and these things are coming through a mile a minute. I have an always-on broadband connection.

Can someone tell me what they are?

Sean,

Is this your home or office network.. Looks to me those incoming  IP addresses are very near to your network..
Have you tried to clear the logs and see if they come and fill it up soon..

Possibly the network around you might have some virus or some hackers trying to scan for open ports ..

Hi seanpowell,
My guess is that you are being scanned by computers infected with the Blaster worm.

See http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blaster.worm.html

It is being blocked which is the main thing.
