    Hey - I've just completed a successful install of SP2. I run Sygate's
    Personal Firewall, and based on the consensus in their user groups, I turned
    off the Windows Firewall to prevent potential conflicts from two active
    firewalls. Just curious if the MS experts also recommend just one firewall?
    If so, is there any way I can eliminate the "At Risk" bubble that pops up at
    start-up, warning me the firewall is not active. Thanks for your feedback.

    Control Panel/Security Center, click on the "Change the Way
    Security Center Notifies Me" link in the left pane.

    If the "Change the Way Security Center Notifies Me" doesn't stick
    when you reboot, you can do the following:

    To "solve" this problem, you can disable the Security Center service.


    Start/Run --> services.msc

    Find "Security Center" in the list, double click on it, set
    "Startup type" to Disabled.
