    The Central24\ewido entry has been determined by the Spybot Team to be a False positive and "will be fixed in the next detection, which probably will be released on friday."

    The FirewallOverride entry as noted in the below pic with the description box open....Spybot is simply informing you that "someone" has chosen via the Windows Security Center to not let Windows monitor your Firewall status and will not issue an alert if it is off.

    If you have knowingly made that choice in Windows Security Center and wish not to be alerted by Spybot of this just right click that FirewallOverride entry that Spybot found and select Exclude this product from further searches.

    HTH,

    Thank you very much Budda for your answer.

    I have installed Jetico personal firewall and disabled the Win XP security center alert.
