I keep getting this registry issue found when running Spybot SD. And my windows firewall is continuouly being diabled. Could it be that its because of Zone Alarm? Below is the Spybot SD log.


Search result list ---
Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallOverride: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallOverride!=dword:0


Thanks

If you are running Zone Alarm (or another third party firewall) you want the Windows firewall to be disabled. Running two firewalls on the same pc can be more trouble than it's worth.
