    What operating system are you using (XP, Vista...).
    Did you run a virus scan?
    It probably wasn't always like that, what was the last action you remember before this started happening to your PC?

Remove security parameters


If your computer is connected to a network or the Internet, it is advisable to use computer security tools, such as a firewall, to protect your computer from unauthorized access or viruses. Windows operating systems come with a built-in firewall, malware protection and Internet security. These settings are automatically configured to the factory's default settings when you purchase the operating system. To alter the settings for these security features, access the Windows Security utility through your system's Control Panel.

Open the "Windows Security" utility by opening your "Start" menu and selecting the "Control Panel" option on the right-hand side. Windows XP users can click on the "Security Center" link in this window. For Vista users, click on the "Security" option, and then click on "Windows Security Center." Click on the "Windows Firewall" option to change the settings for your firewall, if you are using XP. You can turn the firewall on or off, and also configure which programs are allowed through the firewall. Vista users should click on the "Windows Firewall" link in the left window pane and click on the "Change settings" link. In this window, you can block programs from passing through your firewall and grant access to new programs. Click the "Internet Options" selection to configure your Internet security settings. You can raise or lower the security level for different zones using preset configurations, or you can create a custom security level. You can also reset the Internet security level to its default settings. Click on "Automatic Updating" in the Windows Security Center to configure your system's update settings. In Vista operating systems, click on "Windows Update" and "Change Settings." You can configure your update settings to automatically check for updates daily or weekly. You can also set a convenient time for your system to update to prevent interruption. Automatic updating can be turned off by selecting the corresponding option toward the bottom of the window. Select the "Malware Protection" option to edit malware settings if you are using Vista. This option is not available in XP's version of Windows Security Center. You can turn the malware protection programs on or off using the arrow to the right of the "Malware Protection" bar. Click the "X" button to exit Windows Security Settings.

How to turn off firewall in windows 7 and let norton firewall work


  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.

  2. Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Click Off (not recommended), and then click OK



    Make certain that your Norton Firewall is on before you turn off windows firewall (or shortly after) Turning off Windows Firewall might make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers.



    Hope this helps!

I keep getting alerts from Mcafee saying my computer is at risk because my firewall is off. I've tried repeatedly to turn it back on, but after a few seconds, it shuts off again.


Goto start then run, type services.msc, scroll through the list for Windows Firewall and ensure the service is "started" and set to Automatic, you can change it by double clicking on it.

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

or

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.

My software for singer futura machine does not install on either computer how can I fix the problem


The problem could be the operating software (Windows XP, Vista, 7), but it sounds most likely like a firewall problem. If you have a firewall program installed like the one that automatically comes on Windows 7, it doesn't allow much to be installed unless you tell it to allow it. Also, Windows 7 needs a patch to allow the Futura software to install and run (available at www.Futura-support.com). Download the patch. When you go to run it, be sure you're off the internet (right click on Windows Explorer icon that appears in the lower left corner of your screen and choose Close Window). Now left click on the Start icon in the lower left corner. Choose "Systems and Security" in the right column, then "Windows Firewall". On the lefthand side will be the second choice of "Turn Windows Firewall On or Off." You're only going to turn the Firewall off long enough to install the Patch and, YES IT IS SAFE! Once you've installed the patch, go immediately back in and turn your firewall back on.

If you use another firewall program (i.e., Norton, McAfee, Computer Associates), you'll have to refer to their Help on how to allow this to install, though their programs will probably ask if you want to install this software rather than just block it. Unless you set Windows 7 firewall to ask you, it just blocks everything.

I hope this is your problem.

What is the different between xp serrvice pack 1 and 2


A service pack is a collection of all updates released to that point, and often includes new features, as well.

The major enhancements in Windows XP Service Pack 2 include Security Center, Automatic Updates, Windows Firewall, and Internet Explorer.

Security Center is an entirely new feature provided by Windows XP Service Pack 2. The Security Center service runs as a background process in Windows XP and routinely checks the status of the following components:
1. Windows Firewall: Security Center detects whether Windows Firewall is enabled or disabled. Security Center can also detect the presence of some third-party software firewall products.
2. Automatic Updates: Security Center detects the current Automatic Updates setting in Windows XP. If Automatic Updates is turned off or not set to the recommended settings, the Security Center provides appropriate recommendations.
3. Virus Protection: Security Center detects the presence of antivirus software from many third-party organizations. If the information is available, the Security Center service also determines whether the software is up-to-date and whether real-time scanning is turned on.

When Security Center detects an important security condition (such as improper settings), it displays a pop-up notice in the notification area.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 provides several enhancements to the Automatic Updates feature, including the following:
■ The latest version of Automatic Updates offers expanded support for Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office.
■ Previous versions of Automatic Updates could download only critical updates. Now Automatic Updates can download updates in the following categories: security updates, critical updates, update roll-ups, and service packs.
■ Automatic Updates now prioritizes the download of available updates based on the importance and size of the updates. For example, if a large service pack is being downloaded, and a smaller security update is released to address an exploit, that security update will be downloaded more quickly than the service pack.
■ Automatic Updates is now more automated. The need for users to accept End-User License Agreements (EULAs) has been eliminated. Also, the user now has a choice of whether to restart the computer following the installation of updates that might require a restart. Updates that do require a restart can now be consolidated into a single installation so that only one restart is required.

Previous versions of Windows XP include a software-based firewall named Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, this firewall is replaced by Windows Firewall.
Windows Firewall boasts a number of enhancements, including the following:
1. Windows Firewall is now enabled by default on all network
connections.
2. Windows Firewall provides an interface for configuring global settings that apply to all the connections of the computer.
3. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Firewall supports a new feature that allows you to keep Windows Firewall enabled and also not allow any exceptions; only solicited traffic is allowed. This new feature is intended to create an even more secure environment when connecting to the Internet in a public location or other unsecured location.
4. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, a startup Windows Firewall policy performs stateful packet filtering during startup, so that the computer can perform basic network tasks (such as contacting
DHCP and DNS servers) and still be protected.
5. In previous versions, you could not apply firewall rules based on Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can configure Windows Firewall so that firewall rules apply to IP addresses (or IP address ranges), meaning that only traffic from computers with valid IP addresses is allowed through the firewall.
6. In previous versions, you configure permitted traffic by specifying the TCP and UDP ports used by a service or application. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can also configure permitted traffic by specifying the file name of the application. When the application runs, Windows firewall monitors the ports on which the application listens and automatically adds them to the list of allowed incoming traffic.

Internet Explorer:
Windows XP Service Pack 2 introduces a number of new security features to Internet Explorer 6. As with the rest of the enhancements introduced with Windows XP Service Pack 2, most of the updates to Internet Explorer are intended to provide better security.
