When loading IE, this annoying message pops up:

"unable to find msfrewall.exe ... will be shut down .." (or something like that) "

What is this msfrewall.exe?

How do I get rid of this?

OS: XP Pro IE 6

Installed and scanned with Spybot - nothing found.

Installed Adaware, but it couldn't read the definition file. Somehow, looks like something is trying to stop this Adawre from installing properly.

Try doing a search on your machine for msfrewall.exe have you spelled it correctly?
Go to start run type in msconfig and see what is starting up is any thing in there .?
Try these programs and online scans .

And, of course, links to all those sites are in the forum's Spyware FAQ. It opens fast now, too. :-)
