What is wrong with CA Security?
On my CA Security firewall, it says there is attention needed, but the firewall is on. What is wrong?

Check that your CA Security Firewall is active.
Check that your firewall is working and there are no open ports. Run Microsoft OneCare Live Safety Scan (free) it tests for open Firewall Ports (you should have none). If your firewall is not working, all your ports will be open.
Microsoft OneCare Live Safety Scan (free), run “full service scan”
Updates windows, virus and spyware scan, disk cleanup, disk fragmentation (if needed), backs up registry and then cleans registry, and checks for open firewall ports
Generally I find CA Security to use a lot of system resources and not that effective.
I strongly believe you would be much better off with:
Microsoft Security Essentials (free)
New, looks very good in review below and uses very little RAM.
