    Default Windows Security Center giving false alerts?

    When I started
    my laptop today, Windows Security Center reported that ZA Firewall was turned off. When I opened ZA and clicked on the Firewall tab it reported All Systems Active. I tried rebooting, but got the same alert. I used Network Magic to 'Fix' the Alert which it appeared to do, but when
    I checked, it had turned on the Windows Firewall. ZA continues to report All Systems Active. Does anyone have any suggestions as I am concerned about possible conflicts between the two Firewalls. And is this a case of Windows Security Center giving false alerts? I am running ZASS 7.0.470.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!usually it is enough to:1. Shutdown ZA (right click ZA icon near the clock and choose shutdown)2. Wait 1-3 minutes3. Open ZA from all programs --> ZoneAlarm --> etc4. Now WSC should report ZA is ONBetter not to mess us with third party utilities to fix windwos problem, they can easily create other problems not easy to fix. Windows firewall should be turned OFF. ZA does turn OFF the OS firewall by default on install.Cheers,Fax
