The problem persists even with no exceptions checked.
Thanks for your kind response, Max. It helped a lot!

I had some programs checked as "not to be firewalled" exceptions.
Since I have removed all exceptions, the message has not (yet) popped up.

On my XP (home/mediacenter edition) system, I have the Windows Firewall
and AVG (free) installed. It worked for the longest time.
My OS is on auto-update.
AVG reports no viruses. It is up to date.
It started this summer ... sometime in July.
The only thing unusual is that I installed the auto-run fix that came
this summer. That particular fix was downloaded for installation
repeatedly for about a month. Finally it seems to have taken.

From time to time the message "no firewall is turned on" click this
balloon to fix comes up.
Not at startup.
At seemingly random intervals. As if something is turning the
off and then immediately back on.
When I _do_ click the balloon (I have to be quick)I find that the
is turned ON.
a) a bug?
b) a worry?
In any case how do I stop this minor annoyance?
The First Question Of Troubleshooting: If the problem is new, what

The Second Question of Windows Troubleshooting: what is the
status of the machine? If you think it is clean, what programs (and
versions) did you use to determine this?
Be sure the computer is clean:
Answer The Second Question first.
