    What did your MBP say to you exactly? Can you make a screenshot and attach it to your next post?
    Do you maybe have Little Snitch installed? Check your Applications folder, maybe you can make a screenshot or two of it too.

    What kind of network are you on? Is it a home network, business, school, public?

    Likely nothing to worry about usually, BUT you should 'enable' the internal Firewall I would think.. :apple:

    System Preferences > Security > Firewall Tab > Enable

    I doubt you will see any such message again.. ;)

    just happened once but next time it comes up i’ll make sure to take a snap shot of it.

    I thought it was like someone trying to get in to your mbp or comp or something like wanting to get into ur files to look?! Is it like that?

    ----------

    Yes, I checked and its on. Thanks. :D

    Some one can't just pop in and mess with your files they have to authenticate with your password.
