When I run Spybot S/D I get a "problem" having to do with Windows. I'll get to it in just a second. First, I used Pc-cillin for a while for AV protection and always ran Spybot with it. I never got any "problems" on the scans. I switched to Norton Internet Securities and when I loaded it, it said it isn't capatible with Spybot so I removed Spybot. Since then I downloaded Spybot again a couple of days ago. I've ran it a few times and more times than one, more like 4 times, it came up finding the following:
Microsoft.Windows Security Center disabled - 1 entry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\currentControlSet.....Registry change
When I hit "fix" it says problem "fixed". Any ideas what this means? I'm not up on registry entries at all. I do have the Windows Firewall disabled because I have a "hard" firewall in the 2Wire DSL modem plus my NIS 2007 has a firewall.

Spybot's just telling you that your MS Security Center isn't set up the way MS likes it.
Windows likes to do things a certain way, and if it isn't done that way, Windows tends to whine about it.

Don't have Spybot "fix" them.
The next time they come up on a scan, do this for each one:
Single click it, to highlight it
Then right click it
In the menu that pops up, select Exclude this detection from further searches
That should keep them from showing up in future scans.
