I am getting a warning that I do not have a firewall installed from Windows security.

I have a zone alarm firewall that is active . I see the ZA icon.

Before I shut in off I also got a warning about no anti virus program.

Anti virus and spyware programs are up to date and run everyday. No issues found



Is there anything to be concerned about ?

Thanks

tom

If your third party firewall and av protection is working fine, shut off the Windows Security Center in Admin Tools> Servicesand never be nagged again.

Under normal conditions, the Windows Security Center should recognise the existence of a third-party firewall and your AV, if not, you can set it manually if you so desire.
