Default Help with Avast, please!

My friend has avast! Free Antivirus ver. 5.0.594 on a Win XP3 PC.

While connected to the internet, he frequently sees this:
avast! Network Shield has blocked a threat.
No further action is required.

Infection: DCOM Exploit
Action: Blocked

The threat was detected and blocked just before the attack.
Please note that the Object referred to above is not constant. We just saw another from while typing this post.

Since avast! claims that it has blocked the threat and that no further action is required, should he worry, apart from the minor irritation of the avast! notification?
