Logon problem


M

I have a Dell Dimension 8200(Seagate Barracuda 7200 160Gb Hd)
with XP, SP3, Spywareblaster, CcCleaner, Avast and Windows firewall.

I have a recent log-on on problem; the last 3 times when the computer
logs on I get a red shield and a message that my computer may be at
risk. When I check, my firewall is turned off then it automatically
resets itself and it's back to normal.

Thoughts/ Suggestions?

Thanks,
Robert

You should re-post this question, complete with a
different title.

"Temporary firewall problem at boot up" or similar.

To help the process along, I want you to look
at the network icon as well when this happens.
It could be, the Firewall is broken, because
the network connection is broken for the
first 60 seconds. (The "NGEN" problem.)
The network is then rediscovered, the Firewall
enables itself, the problems go away. It could
even be a vice-versa problem, firewall causes
the problem, and network connection suffers
temporarily because of it. Something in that
mess, uses a .NET assembly, and that's what is
actually broken.

Right now, my network icon doesn't show. When I
have the "NGEN problem", I recollect seeing a
network icon with an X on it. And it disappears
after around 60 seconds. I think the NGEN solution
fixes mine for me. Haven't seen it in a month
or two. But, it'll be back. Just like the Windows
Update problem ("svchost 100% CPU") will be back
in January again. With support done in April, I
see no reason for them to fix that. It's too easy
to just "sit on your hands" and wait for April,
for the development manager at Microsoft. Having
worked at a big company with thousands of software
developers, I've seen this "sit on your hands" routine
before. It's hard on the fingers :)

G.F. said:
I almost always read that phrase.
Just for curiosity: how many Dell there are around? :)

http://www.itchannelplanet.com/tren...t-US-Q4-PC-Market-Slides-Nearly-7-Percent.htm

According to Gartner,

Hewlett-Packard Co 62.8 million PC units
2010 Acer Group 45 million shipped PC units
Dell Inc.’s 42 million PCs shipped <---
Lenovo Group Ltd. 34 million PCs in 2010
Toshiba 19 million units

This shows the various computer types versus time. The
350 million total in the previous article, would align
with the right-most column here.

Dell has been in business since 1984. The total number
would be quite large. Think of how big that pile would
be, in a landfill site.

I re-posted as you suggested. Also there is no Network icon. I'll
now move to the newer post.
