    In the last couple of weeks I have been getting hundreds of port scans by a
    particular IP address 82.38.53.80. My firewall blocks them everytime...I
    hope! but they are getting annoying, is there anything that can be done?

    They're from your ISP. Ignore them.

    Yeah, turn off the pop up alerts from your firewall.
