Some anti-virus soft install their own firewall so windows firewall has to be turned off.

Sometimes warnings like that come up during start up but fade out when your anitvirus or it's firewall are fully active and windows gets around to recognizing it. If the warning fades soon after, you may be ok, but check your antivirus program and see about it's firewall/settings if any. You can run only one without conflict.
