This is the message Spybot S+D shows after running it.
I went to the Spybot forum and there is quite a discussion going on as to what it is/isn't and what to do about it.
Does anyone who uses this program have any solid ideas.

If you have any firewall other than the built in XP one, the Windows firewall is essentially disabled. That's all Spybot is telling you. I'm using Windows Live OneCare and it disables the built-in XP firewall in favor of its own and gives me that message in Spybot. At least I THINK that's how my message reads. I simply ignore it.
