Default Generic host process


When I log on to the internet I keep getting the following messages from the Sygate firewall-

Generic host process for Win32 services (svchost.exe) is being contacted from a remote machine ( using local port 135 (EMAP-location service - dynamically assigned ports for RPC)

I also get NTOSKRNL.EXE trying to connect to the internet as well.

I always block these and there doesn't seem to be any problems, but even if I choose Sygate to block these programs and not to alert me again it still does. When I first connect to the net I get bombarded with these requests and then it pops up every ten minutes for so thereafter.

Is there anyway I can stop this? I'm not in the habit of letting anything connect to the internet unless I know exactly what it is.
