Re: information bubbles and jaws?

ah, so John was responding to Gerald's post even though what he wrote seemed 
to be a direct reply to *my* post? No wonder I was confused and wondered why 
my earlier post had suggested that I might have malware problems, otherwise 
known as "issues," today. Aside from that, Gerald's explanation sounds 
pretty reasonable.

There's definitely no malware on my computer.  I run AVG Pro complete scan
every day and Super Anti Spyware once a week.  I also periodically run
Windows Malware Removal Tool.  I suspect that The firewall warning message
pops up because Windows Firewall has not fully loaded before Security Center
has had a chance to verify it.
