  • Nothing to be concerned about. It is over-aggressive logging by OneCare, I believe. Part of the daily check is to probe your router to see if your security is enabled. If it can't probe the router, it may log a failure.

  • Could this task cause a network dropoff?

  • It should not, though there have been reports that a Motorola modem/router SBG900 reboots when this check occurs. See this thread for details and a workaround - http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2505935&SiteID=2

  • Could this be the cause where my computer takes more than 40 minutes to start up where it's not using 100% of my cpu resources? I'm getting really tired of this.

  • No, a long boot can be caused by serious conflicts or hardware issues. Running multiple security programs can cause this. Some time back I was trying to resolve someone's slow boot process and found that they had 3 antivirus programs installed and running: AOL, McAfee, and Norton. Once I removed 2 of them, the PC was fine. Hardware could be a failing hard drive, for example.
