sorry if i give you a bad translation, since all you see, my system is in spanish...

but the problem is; i did a registry cleaner(to erase some entries of a bad uninstalled software) (with comodo registry cleaner) after restart i notice that the antivirus and firewall icons on the clock area were gone, after couple of restarts they came back.... now the activity center flag is delayed (bt now i dont remember if it is normal or not) and once the flag is there i test the activity center by disabling firewall, then the flag come out with a red "x", but not with the antivirus.
In this picture, as you see

i have disabled both, antivirus and firewall and it only shows the firewall as "important" message.

should not show the antivirus status as an important message too?

Registry Cleaners cause problems they do not cure them. NEVER use a registry cleaner. Use system restore to go back to a point before you used the registry cleaner.

yeah.. definitely im starting to agree with you, but i did a system restore to see if that action restore the registry (to the point just before the registry cleaner erase the "errors" on the registry, and i had no result. the system is stable and fast but i dont like those little weird behaviors...

some other tell me that it is normal that the activity center warns you as a "normal" message when the antivirus is off, but im almost sure tht have seen antivirus off as an "important" message on activity center, could you try with yours? click on your antivirus on "off" button and see what message throw you the activity center.... please?

Go to action center settings and see what you have checked. Just type in the word "action" in the search.
