Buy a hardware firewall that you place in front of your computer. You probably 
have a log option in your firewall and someone is trying to connect to your 
web server. You could turn off logging but I like to know who is trying to 
connect to my systems. This is especially true when I am not running a 
service and they are probing to find out if I am.
