    I have just set up both computers for a network with installed router. The PC firewall plus seems rather redundant, but if I disable it, I get the little red heart with the x in the middle. Is there a fix for this? Thanks, Bill

    If your not using the Windows Firewall and have it turned off then turn off the security monitoring to stop getting the notification about it.

    Go to Control Panel > Security Center > click on 'Change the way Security Center alerts me' > untick Firewall.
