    I currently have windows xp and this security alert screen comes up that reads
    your computer is at risk in the following area:
    firewall protection is turned off
    open your norton product to resolve these issues
    to prevent duplicate security status alerts use my existing norton product alerts and turn off redundant windows security alerts.

    I don't have the norton antivirus cd because it came with my computer when I bought it.

    To resolve this issue I believe you will either have to update NPF to conform with XP SP2 standards or open the XP SP2 Security center (> Control Panel) and do the following:

    Select "change the way Security Center alerts me" and remove the check for the firewall under "alert settings".

    The XP SP2 firewall should be enabled by default, but verify that is the case if you are not using Norton Personal Firewall.
