False Windows Security Alerts?

Hi all,

Everytime after I reboot/log in, Windows security alerts balloon pops up telling me "no firewall is turned on" and "antivirus software might not be installed".

But I've got the most up to date versions of NOD32 and Comodo Firewall Pro running and I've been using them for ages. Windows Security Centre just started not recognizing them since last night. I only installed Babylon 7 and can't think of any other changes I did.

I tried clearing out my cache, then scanning with Spybot, AVG Anti Spyware, and NOD32 - no threats found; rebooted for a few times, still the same outcome.

Any ideas?

Cheers

I think to better fix your issue you should post in the Malware forum. Please read the Guide before you post.

Thanks jaxisland for your reply.

I posted it here because I thought it's probably more related to XP issue rather than malware issue.

As I mentioned in my post I'd scanned the pc with AVG, Spybot, and NOD32 after the problem presented itself; also used Hijackthis to check if there was any suspicious entry - all came back negative.

But if you do think I need to post this to Malware, I'll try my luck there too.

Cheers
