Hi dorsil;
Have you turned off or disabled your antivirus?

Have you turned off the Windows notification that one or more of your security functions are not detected?

I turned off the notification because Windows did not recognize my security software even though it is legit and working.

Spybot appears to be picking up that you have overridden the settings.

What I'm saying dorsil is if you have turned off the security notification in Windows then Spybot would be reporting that fact. Also if you have disabled your AV then Spybot could be reporting that too.

You do not need to disable those before running Spybot.
