    That would be the IP [internet protocol] address of the offending computer. IP is a protocol used to transmitt over the internet. Here is a nice FAQ on IP and addresses. It is basicly the way computer know how to talk to each other. When you type google.com, you actually connect to what is called a name server, that tranlates google.com into TCP [a protocol like IP] and IP are way too deep for me to cover everything but that is a basic description.

    Don't suppose they are present liked this:, with periods between them? Likely an IP that is infected and is trying to infect yours. As long as AVAST is telling you about it, all is good.
