 thanks for any advice

You shouldn't erase those. These entries tell the Security Center not to
warn you when your antivirus is turned off, and that's ok as long as your Norton protection notifies you instead. However, if that is not the case, or you are NOT using AV protection, you should check for malware because many viruses disable these notifications.

Anyway, in Spybot - Search & Destroy, if you select this entry and expand the tab on the right, you will get advice on this. If you are sure notification have NOT been disabled by mistake or evil software,
it's a good idea to tell spybot not to show you these entries in the future. You can do that by right-clicking an entry, and selecting the
appropriate option.

Thanks for the info
