Avast & Windows Firewall

Hi all, I was running the latest version of Avast on my Vista OS PC, I found that Windows Firewall was switched off each time I booted/rebooted, I get a warning message from Windows Security Centre to check my firewall, I have never encountered this problem with Avast before, so I uninstalled the latest version and installed an older Avast version from 2010, the same problem is still occurring, I'm not sure wether the problem is with Avast or Window Firewall, any suggestions please.

Avast is not your problem
PC Tools firewall will switch off windows firewall you can only have one firewall working at a time.

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\, it just seems strange that it's only just started doing it in the last week, as I have always had PC Tools running. P.
