If you have an internet security programme, sometimes it will turn off windows firewall and use it's own instead, but you should still be able to turn it back on manually through control panel>windows firewall

Start up will not retain memory for fire wall setting.


Make sure you haven't installed a third-party internet security suite that includes a firewall. You should only use one firewall on your system and some third party firewalls automatically turn the windows firewall off. But your security center should show that you are protected by a firewall, nevertheless.
This behavior can be an indication of malware installed on your computer...
I recommend you go to windows update and make sure you are current with all critical security updates for your system, then go to www.malwarebytes.com and install their AntiMalware software. Scan your system and fix any problems it detects.
Then see if your system retains the firewall settings.
I thought there was a MS knowledge base article on this that had something to do with sp3 and a bug fix but I can;t seem to find it right now...
If I locate it I'll post back with a comment...
In the meantime, if those first two suggestions don't turn anything up, I'd run chkdsk on your system and see if it finds some file corruption.
See this article and this one

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How to Check Windows 7 Firewall Settings

1. Click on the start button, and then click on Control Panel

2. Once in Control Panel click on Windows Firewall. Here you will see the main firewall settings.

Note with the newer versions of Windows, this includes Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 you now leave the service running. If you want to turn off the firewall you just click on the "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" option.

In addition if something networking related is not working properly it may me a good idea to turn off the Windows Firewall for testing to see if the Windows Firewall is actually causing your problem.

3. If you are planning to leave the Windows Firewall running it is a good idea to check your "Advanced settings"

Once in here you will be able to check your incoming and outgoing rules, as well as your connection rules.

Note if you still have trouble after setting the "Advance settings" there could be another firewall on a computer or on the network in general blocking the communication. If you are communicating from computer to computer in most cases your need to make sure the same firewall changes are on both computers.

Trying to download norton 360, but I'm getting a communication error as if there is a firewall preventing communication. The windows security centre (security essentials) shows the firewall switched on,...


I wouldn't worry too much about turning it off to do the download from Symantec's site. Just don't go surfing around while it's downloading. After the download turn it back on. Norton will turn it off anyway when you install 360.

You may want to uninstall the AdAware before you install 360 also just to avoid possible conflicts.
