Windows Firewall Pops Off and On Seemingly at Random

I will be online, surfing, and I'll hear a pop noise and see that Windows Firewall is off....and then the indicator goes away within seconds as the firewall turns back on. WTF?

This only happens on this new computer I have. I've run spyware software and have anti-virus installed.

Is this event something to be concerned about or likely some weird (natural) glitch?

maybe it is the winxp security center warning. you can disable that service through the control panel via admin tools.
