I know this post is very, very late, but I just added this group.
If you are running an AntiVirus, like Symantec (aka Norton), they turn
off various Windows features because the AntiVirus handles these. The
"FirewallOveride" is just one of them.
The upshot is, with the AntiVirus installed, having these features in
Windows disabled is normal. SpyBot sees this. To prevent future
notices from SpyBot you use the set to ignore these problems as
Change to Advanced Mode
Settings (on sidebar)
Select Ignore Products
Click the Security.sb1 tab
Now use the checkboxes to set ignore for;
Change back to Default Mode
You should also set ignore for whatever else is normal for you, such
as the WindowsSecurityCenter overrides for Automatic Updates (I have
auto-updates turned off on my home system, I run Microsoft Updates
manually each Wednesday).
