    Hi recently I've noticed when my computer first starts up, I get an error message saying "firewall not turned on click bubble to fix problem", when I click on said bubble the security centre comes up showing the firewall is indeed turned off, yet after about 30 seconds as if by magic the firewall comes on and all is well again, but why is it doing this, I run my anti virus software AVG (free) and nothing comes up but whenI run my ad-aware I get an AVG warning of a threat from OOPS.EXE, which is sent to the virus vault but keeps coming back again. I just wanted your input before I start uninstalling. I'm running Windows XP (sp3), with AVG free 2011, Ad-aware (free V9.0).
