It isn’t the same thing. They’re thinking about the Security Center balloon appearing sometimes when fast user switching, and I’m definitely not talking about it. This is something really more severe: CPF has been actually disabled, its policy being changed to ‘Allow all’.
One possibility regarding the switch to Allow All…
I came across that a few times in the past, and apparently the control is very sensitive (or rather, interfacing with it). Thus, if a user clicks quickly in the systray area and/or rolls the mouse scrollwheel, it is apparently possible to inadvertently cause it to change.
I was a bit of a “super-clicker” prior to that; realizing what was going on cured me of that habit.
I cannot say that is what happened with your case, but it’s the only thing I have personal experience with. If you monitor the situation, and do the user-switching some more, try to see if it reoccurs when you know you’re not clicking in the systray area. If it no longer happens, perhaps that was the problem. If it does happen, and you can quantify that clicking is not the cause, I would file a ticket with support post-haste.
I only use keyboard shortcuts within applications; and I use those a ton… Mouse is too slow… It’s an old habit from the pre-Win days, where if you wanted to do something in WordStar, ProfessionalWrite or SuperCalc (4 or 5) quickly, you had to know the shortcuts
So now I just learn what each app’s shortcuts are, and use 'em… But the desktop is a different matter, and if you move the mouse quickly, click fast, you may end up grabbing stuff ever-so-slightly, which is what I think happens with the security setting.
Hello, everyone. My firewall is totally disabled after I run a Spysweeper sweep. It also happens when I run a NOD32 sweep. Always cured with restart though. It’s not a problem as I’m not on the internet when I scan.
