    i just did the free up grade from mcafee and took it for a spin on the web to see if it worked better ....all was fine and good , as a habit i scan with spybot just to be rid of the cookies you pick up here and there; before i shut down but got a bit of a surprise this time...spybot picked up a change in regisrty and it appears to be with the windows firewall (on/off)....i left it be thinking it was something mcafee had done and spybot hit on it ....am i correct in my thinking or did some how i got hit ....i run the full suite that mcafee offers and it has never been a problem

    These are warnings that the Security Center alerts that would normally warn you if your anti-virus and firewall have been turned off or disabled for any reason, have been unchecked so that they do not warn you.

    If you chose not to be alerted and turned those things off in the Security Center intentionally, then you can have SpyBot put these on Ignore.
    Otherwise, something or someone has changed those settings and that should be investigated further.

    You will find them under the Security Center in the Control Panel.
    On the left-hand side, you will see five options.
    Click on the last one "Change The Way Security Center Alerts Me" and you will find three choices there.
    If there are no check marks in the boxes, that means that the alerts have been turned off.
