Every time I open my Windows Live Mail I have multiple messages

Resolved Question:

Every time I open my Windows Live Mail I have multiple messages as follows:-
eg
"NETGEAR DGN 2200v3 Log
[DoS attack scan] from source 198.27 124.21:120 Tuesday March 31,2015 17:47:47"
What does this mean, and should I be worried?

Hi, and thank you for asking your question.
Please rest assured - these are not real attacks, but are simply normal router alerts shown when scanning inbound connections through your network - programs that access the network through your system are automatically scanned by your router's firewall, showing up these prompts.
If you need to disable these messages from coming in, just open up any email from Netgear, then choose Actions → Junk E-Mail → Add Sender to Blocked Senders List. This should do it.
