Well after surviving the FakeAlert.5 problem, I am now getting error messages from windows 7 (I think) saying that my antivirus is not working. However, Bullguard (v8.7) is in my system tray and when I open it, it says that the antivirus is enabled (along with firewall, spam filter).

Any ideas as to why I am getting this error?

After you have installed v9.0 you will still get the messages.

Currently using the AV/Firewall and Win7 64bit more often than not reports BOTH as being off.
