This is really driving me nuts. I've done numerous scans for Trojans, Worms,malware, spyware, even misplaced underwear... and this still keeps popping up in Spybot Search and Destroy's list of things to fix (but it isn't being fixed, and somehow its reinstalling itself) What tipped me off there might be a problem, was when I was getting a Security Center warning that Zone Alarm was turned off. Then I was getting the yellow X in Red Square (true vector Monitoring service) Went to Zone Alarm Forums... Zilch But I did manage to fix the TVMS problem. Last alert from Windows Security was Firewall Status: Unknown ZA seems to be working.

Microsoft.windowssecuritycenter.firewalloverride is nothing to be alarmed about. You have checked the tick box in Windows Security that you are monitoring the firewall yourself. :thumbsup: So don't worry it's there doing no harm to your computer.

Okay then... yeah, I've ticked the "I have a firewall solution I'll monitor myself" item, however, while looking in the registry under Security Center... the dword value for Firewall and Antivirus items were all 0'ed.

before ZoneAlarm always showed as Green "ON" in security center... so the "Firewall is turned off..." or " Firewall status is unknown" is a recent occurence. AVG did find a couple of items in E:\Recycler that were traces of an NC.exe or a De1.exe - both are identified as "RemoteAdmin" and embedded... but theres little information about this. The Recycle bins have been emptied...

Hello,

The registry is confirming that it is not set to monitor your security products. to make sure your firewall is running, bring up task manager and have a look for something that begins with "zls" also, firewalls will have a service it the services.msc window

Hope this helps
Regards,

Alan.

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.

Or alternatively, via Spybots interface, Settings>Ignore Products>Security.sbi tab.
