Best thing to do is use a firewall to find out and make your computer more secure here is a link that has a list of firewalls to choose from

I dunno what OS you are running, but if you want to see who is scanning, probing and poking around, you might want to check out:
http://www.snort.org/ and the docs http://www.snort.org/docs/
Hope this helps you.

umm OKAY SO IT IS WINDOWS. Then you can still download it. Snort has been ported. Good luck.

a couple of free tools that make this easy are either tiny personalfirewall
or agnitum outpost
together with tiny logger which works with both and can be had from here:
With TinyLogger you can:
sort the log
filter the log
copy entries from the log
search after specific entries
export the log to a HTML file
if you really get into doing this you can download kiwi syslog with which you can format your firealls output to a database format

If you feel like coughing up some money, Norton Internet Security does a bang up job at showing and recording intrusion attempts, portscans, etc, etc.
I use it. I have been using it. I shall continue to use it. No viruses. No nothing.

I think sygate is a good firewall for the beginner level.
And it is pretty self explanitory to utilize.
Sygate, Zonealarm pro even though it has a flaw in smtp,outpost,vinsnetic I think that's spelled correctly, Etc Etc. But I prefer sygate.
