At start-up, I notice that the Security Centre icon on the system tray
displays the following warnings:

Display the first warning for a few seconds

"Your computer might be at risk. No firewall is turned on. Click this
balloon to fix this problem."

Then the second warning for another few seconds

"Your computer might be at risk. Symantec AntiViurs Corporate Edition is
tuned off. Click this balloon to fix this problem."

I opened the Security Centre and Windows Firewall in Control Panel and found
both antivirus and firewall are turned on. I am using Windows XP Pro SP2
and Symantec SAVCE 10. Can someone advise me why it happens and how to
resolve it.

Thanks,

Ray

The Security Center is monitoring before those items are started.
Once they are running, the warning goes away.
Since the warnings go away after a few seconds, there is not a problem.
