Firewall keeps cutting out. I can't install zone alarm and I am trying some new ones.I decided to run some scans spybot came up with this. Windows Security Center.FirewallOveride I have removed it and installed a trial of black ice.I can see why someone would want to overide my firewall. There could be malware controlling my computer. What do people think?

If you have XP, you need to turn off the Windows firewall before activating the firewall you have chosen; having more than one firewall active at the same time causes conflicts and can cause problems.

Windows firewall was de-activated when I installed black ice. I got up this morning and it doesn't work. I have run spybot again and it finds the overide.Are you saying XP is doing this?
