I every time open my computer one massage is open on my desktop your system may be at risk how to solve this problem

Windows is alerting you that you have either

1. No firewall settings configured, no firewall, or turned off windows firewall


2. No anti-virus/anti-malware software

To solve number one, you should turn on the windows firewall or install a 3rd party firewall program of your choosing. To turn on windows firewall, follow this procedure for Windows XP:

1. START > Control Panel > Security Center
2. When security center opens, look for the section "Manage Security Settings For" then click "Windows Firewall."
3. In the Dialog box that comes up, click the circle in front of "On" to turn on the firewall. This setting may already be turned on. Verify the firewall is turned on.
4. Click "Ok" to save your choices and exit, or "Cancel" to close the window without saving any choices.

If you choose to install a 3rd party firewall program, use the above procedure and select "OFF" in step 3. You want to do this so that there will not be conflicts between the Windows Firewall and the 3rd party firewall program. Once you turn off Windows firewall, immediately install and turn on your 3rd party firewall program to minimize exposing your computer to threats.

For number two, you should install a quality anti-virus or anti-malware program. McAfee, and Norton are popular choices. Avast! Antivirus, AVG and Malware Bytes are a bit more comprehensive, especially Malware Bytes. Avast! Antivirus is free, both to download and update. The license lasts a year, but you can simply re-download and install the program to get a fresh new license that's good for a year. Each program has varying features and goodies, so choose the one that's best for you.

I cant download yahoo messenger it say that has to do with my firewall i've turn off firewall but still cant download messenger

Do not turn off firewall it will not allow to install the messenger.
Turn on firewall and restart your computer and reconnect with internet and try to download messenger.
If you are not downloading messenger from legal or untrusted website then it is familiar to do that for computer.
