    Hello All, I believe I must have a virus or something that keeps turning off my Windows XP firewall. I am notified by the system when this happens and then I have to manually turn the firewall back on. I have Avast Antivirus on my computer and it hasn't found anything. If anyone has any ideas about what I could use to find out whats running on my computer to turn off my firewall please let me know.
