Easy question: Windows Firewall log displays "DROP ---------MyIP-------------ForeignIP-------Ports----------------------------RECEIVE"

In the Windows firewall log, what does the RECEIVE mean at the end of "DROP ---------MyIP-------------ForeignIP-------Ports----------------------------RECEIVE"? Does it mean that it is accepting packets from the foreign IP after dropping some?

Thanks

RECEIVE just tells the direction of the communication. Data was coming to you, but was dropped by the firewall.... fairly normal for Windows Firewall.
